Old Warren County Court House Museum
Vacation Travel Guide

This grand old courthouse was an emblem of Confederate resistance during the siege of Vicksburg, and today the stunning Greek-revival building contains an intriguing museum.

The Old Warren County Court House Museum is perched high on a hill, where it has looked out over historic Vicksburg since 1858. This National Historic Landmark is an important site in Mississippi for its symbolic and steadfast resistance during the Civil War. Explore the fascinating exhibits of the courthouse’s museum to learn about Vicksburg’s pivotal role during wartime. Check out a vast array of artifacts and relics from the era when Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederate States of America, and Booker T. Washington gave address here.

Admire the court house’s architecture as you walk across its pretty square. Just like many of the historic brick-laid streets of Vicksburg, the magnificent Greek-revival structure was constructed by slave artisans. The court house features a grand symmetrical design, accented by a stunning portico with Corinthian columns and an elegant domed tower. Enter the building to find the extensive collections of the Old Warren County Court House Museum.

Explore two floors of interesting exhibits at the museum and find a vast array of artifacts, including a fascinating collection of Confederate relics. See Confederate flags, including one that was never surrendered, as well as uniforms, munitions and original documents.

You can also see antique and antebellum items such as fine china, silverware, paintings, furniture, toys and clothing. Spot the teddy bear given to a local child by Theodore Roosevelt and the tie worn by Jefferson Davis when he was inaugurated as Confederate president. Walk through the court house chambers to see the original hand-carved dark wood of the pews and benches from the 1860s. Spend some time relaxing under the trees in the courtyard and gardens.

Find the Old Warren County Court House Museum in the heart of historic downtown Vicksburg. The courthouse square takes up a pretty city block a few blocks east of the Mississippi riverfront. The museum is open daily, but there is a closure during Sunday mornings. The museum has an admission fee and parking is available on the surrounding streets. Nearby, you can also visit the Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum, where Coca-Cola was first bottled.
