This 40-acre complex, located in the heart of the city, brings to life Mississippi’s rich agricultural heritage. A 40,000-square-foot Heritage Center traces the history of agriculture and forestry through an extensive collection of artifacts and lifelike exhibits. Outside, the Fortenberry-Parkman Farm restoration and Bisland Cotton Gin, both circa 1860, tell the story of farm life in early Mississippi. Walk down Main Street of the “Small Town, Mississippi” restoration (circa 1920) and imagine a day in the lives of the people who once toiled and worshiped in these buildings. The Children’s Barnyard and Multi-Purpose Center reopened in 2020. Award-winning rose gardens and special interest gardens provide enjoyment year-round. And, the museum is home to the National Agricultural Aviation Museum.
