Start your visit on a high note at the Clinton Visitor Center. Designed by Belinda Stewart of Eupora, Mississippi, the award winning building is constructed with period materials and architectural details including porches and a ìdogtrotî. Our visitor center has the look and authentic charm of the period farmhouses once located along the Natchez Trace. Bricks are a native building material and the handmade bricks used here are the same bricks used in Monticello and Mount Vernon. Cypress, reclaimed from a century old sugar mill that was demolished in South Louisiana, is used for porch posts and railings, the fireplace mantel and front counter.
Come sit on the porch in our rockers, picnic on the beautifully landscaped grounds, view the artifacts and photos inside and enjoy internet access including wireless. With changing exhibits throughout the year, our museum highlights the history of the Trace and Clinton. Hosting many local gatherings, the meeting room provides a venue for musical jam sessions each weekend. The reception area includes a shop where you can purchase work from local artisans including pottery, jewelry, books and delicious Mississippi food products.
We are here to provide you local information about Clinton as well as along the Natchez Trace. Our promise is that we will provide you the warmest welcome that you will find anywhere in the world. Come see us!
