Brice’s Crossroads Battlefield – Chief Tishomingo Scenic Byway

Overview

Being virtually unspoiled by commercial development, few places in Mississippi incorporate so much diverse history in one place. Histories derived from the Civil War, the Native Americans, and early African Americans, culminating into a historically rich area with a naturally scenic backdrop. Much of the Brice’s Crossroads Battlefield-Chief Tishomingo Scenic Byway already has established tourist stops of historic value, anchored first by the Brice’s Crossroads Visitors and Interpretive Center, now known as the Mississippi’s Final Stands Interpretive Center, at 607 Grisham Street, Baldwyn, Mississippi. Here you will find archeological artifacts on display from the battlefield in both permanent and temporary exhibits. The staff provides historical interpretations of artifacts and battles. Historical resources are available for research at this location.
