The Old Capitol Museum

Original State Capitol

100 South State Street
Jackson, Mississippi

A National Historic Landmark and one of America’s finest examples of Greek Revival architecture, the Old Capitol building served as state capitol from 1839 to 1903, housing such notable events as the passage of the Ordinance of Secession. The Old Capitol was restored from 1959 to 1961 for use as the state historical museum. Restored to its original glory, the Old Capitol returned as a state house museum in 2009.
