Union County Heritage Museum

The 17th anniversary of the Union County Historical Society and Heritage Museum will be celebrated in 2008. First located in a former church sanctuary, the museum is now housed in a modern facility with five galleries and a gift shop. Exhibits in "The Hamlet", an outdoor exhibit area give the visitor interactive experiences and a feel for Mississippi’s rural culture with the Faulkner Literary Garden, country store, a caboose, an early 20th century doctor’s office, a black smith shop, a1950s auto body shop and agricultural exhibits. The museum complex occupies a city block in New Albany one block from the birthplace of Nobel Prize winning writer William Faulkner.
