Burns-Belfry Museum & Multicultural Center

The legacy of recently emancipated African Americans stands proudly today in tribute to their determination to build their own church. Their frame Methodist Episcopal Church built in 1867 near the Oxford Square was replaced in 1910 with a twin-steepled brick church. Following the building’s restoration in 2013, the Mississippi Landmark now serves the community as a history museum and an events center. Professionally designed exhibits review African American life from Enslavement through Civil Rights. A video and accompanying panels tell the Burns Church story. Local African Americans are featured throughout the museum. It’s an easy walk to the Burns-Belfry Museum from the historic Oxford Square.
