Rolling Fork Visitors Center and Museum holds Open House

The newly renovated Rolling Fork Visitors Center and Museum recently held an open house to officially share recent updates made possible, in part, by a grant from the Mississippi Delta National Heritage Area. The museum includes displays sharing the story of Teddy Roosevelt and his bear hunt that lead to the creation of the 'Teddy Bear", artifacts from area indian mounds, and music by blues great Muddy Waters, who was born in Rolling Fork and still has family there.

The Visitors Center and Museum, located just off Highway 61 on Walnut Street is manned by volunteers ready to tell you all about our area, and is open Thursday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Special tours may be arranged by calling 662.873.2232.
