Located at the famous Crossroads where the Memphis & Charleston
and the Mobile & Ohio railroads made Corinth the most strategic
transportation hub during the Civil War, the museum sits only
a few feet from the original tracks. The
crossroads still enjoys frequent traffic as Norfolk Southern
and Kansas City send dozens of freight trains through Corinth
each day. Visitorís
can get a glimpse of the historic crossroads from the safety
of the museum's interior gallery.
Home to many artifacts detailing the history of Northern Mississippi,
the Crossroads Museum offers permanent exhibit items featuring
Civil War relics, depot and railroad industry displays, fossils,
American Indian artifacts and aviation memorabilia.
On loan from Corinth Coca-Cola Bottling Works, the museum is
also home to more than 1,000 pieces of authentic Coca-Cola memorabilia,
including a large collection of old fashioned drink machines
from years gone by. Visit the gift shop for a refreshing Coca-Cola
in a glass bottle.
Also on the museum grounds, visitorsí can view a bright red
retired caboose. The attraction is open to the public during
