Lower Mississippi Historic Scenic Byway


The Lower Mississippi Historic Byway follows U.S. Highway 61 from Warren County through the counties of Claiborne, Jefferson and Adams and terminates at the Louisiana state line in Wilkinson County. This one hundred plus mile corridor that parallels the Mississippi River captures multiple sites of historical significance at the local, state and national levels. Every aspect of the scenic byway’s criteria can be found along this route and connects four of the oldest settlements along the Mississippi River. These settlements include Natchez, Port Gibson, Vicksburg and Woodville.
