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.

This Greek Revival home, designed by William Turner, was used as headquarters for General McPherson during Grant's occupation of Oxford in 1862. Molly Turner Orr gathered a fire brigade to save the home in 1864 after being set aflame by occupying Union troops. Nearly a century later, Cedar Oaks was moved 2.2 miles from its original location when it was threatened with demolition. Currently open for pre-arranged groups only.

A leisurely drive down Corinth's tree-lined streets or perhaps a stroll down a shaded sidewalk can conjure memories of a time when homebuilding was an art form and front porches were the heart of a neighborhood. Many picturesque Antebellum, Victorian and Craftsman structures mark time as they offer a history of architectural design stretching from the 1850's into the 1930's. The structures of Historic Downtown offer a kaleidoscope of style and ornate decor. The nostalgia of that vibrant era, when life was centered around the Courthouse Square and election returns were written in soap on storefront windows, still lingers. The walking tour of Corinth's Historic Downtown includes Mississippi Historical Landmarks and National Historic Landmarks.
