Welcome to the
OKTIBBEHA COUNTY HERITAGE MUSEUM
Bridging the Generations
The Heritage Museum seeks to connect our history and culture to today’s children and adults in an interactive way. The museum plays a vital role in our community by linking our past with the present. There is something of interest for everyone. Children and adults can enjoy a time of discovery, adults can experience nostalgia, and children can learn and play in the Children’s Corner.
Where the Past Comes Alive
Established in 1976 to celebrate our nation’s 200th birthday, the Heritage Museum is housed in a renovated 1874 Mobile & Ohio railroad depot located at the corner of Russell and Fellowship Streets, in the heart of Starkville, Mississippi.
The museum offers a rich view of the history and culture of Starkville and Oktibbeha County through a permanent collection of artifacts that provide a window into our community’s bygone era.
We invite you to visit the museum for a closer look and a greater appreciation. Please remember to sign our guest register.
