The old Tishomingo County Courthouse is now home to Tishomingo County Archives & History Museum and also houses the Tishomingo County Historical & Genealogical Society. Cindy Nelson has been named Director of Operations. The Tishomingo County Archives and History Museum is a non-profit, volunteer run facility located at 203 East Quitman Street, Iuka, MS. Besides having a large permanent collection of historical records of Tishomingo County, people will readily see that the courthouse has a well-rounded inventory of artifacts appealing to everyone's interests.
The courthouse is open 95 during the week and from 10-2 on Saturday.
Admission is free, however, a donation of $ 2.00 is recommended.
The museum itself is wonderful, has a big courtroom that made me think of the courtroom in the John Wayne movies True Grit and Rooster Cogburn (it looks just like it). They have civil war memorabilia, Indian artifacts, medicine and medical bags from the 1800's, a homefront room, a genealogy dept., a sheriff's office, a bell pull with a working bell, a gift shop, one room church, school, general store and more.
