Corinth Coliseum Civic Center

Benjamin Franklin Liddon, a local banker and civic leader, designed and constructed the Coliseum Theater in 1924 with a capacity of 999 seats. The theatre is a showplace of Victorian and Art Deco Design. Such elements as black and white tile, ornamental plaster on the ceilings, imported white marble wainscoting and a grand staircase warrant its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also a Mississippi Landmark.

Corinth Contraband Camp

In 1862, a contraband camp was built at Corinth to house escaped slaves seeking refuge with the Union Army. The 600-acre camp had a successful working farm, church, commissary, hospital, school and housing area. As many as 6,000 people resided in what was considered a "model camp." The 1st Alabama Infantry Regiment of African Descent was recruited from the camp for service in the Union Army. The present site is comprised of 21-acres with pedestrian promanade. Bronze figures depicting life in the camp will be added beginning in November 2008.
