History & History Related Items

Olive Branch history:

Olive Branch was first known, unofficially, as Watson's Crossroad. The town was located where several old Chickasaw Indian trails crossed. The first post office was opened in 1846. It was at that time that the name of Olive Branch was suggested for the official name by Mrs. Frances Wilson Blocker. She felt it was a symbol of a dove bringing the Olive Branch to Noah in the ark. The name was approved and adopted. Olive Branch was incorporated as a town on 1 May 1874. By 6 March 1888, it attained Village status.
