    The other museum on the courthouse square, which also falls under the Wilkinson County Museum, is the Wilkinson County African American Museum. This museum is housed in an even older building; the Branch Banking House of the State of Mississippi Building built in 1819. This muaseum too, offers a glimpse into the history of the town and the area but with an emphasis on the contributions of ite black residents. Don't miss the folk art and the info on the blues!

    Wilkinson is a very historic part of Mississippi and has two nice museums on the courthouse square. The main museum is housed in the building that served as the Main Office for the West Feliciana Railroad Company (which was the first railroad in the state) and was built in 1838. The museum houses a varietyof displays about the fascinating history of Woodville and this part of the state. Hours are 10 AM to 12 PM and 2 PM to 4 PM Monday through Friday, and 10 AM to 12 PM on Saturday. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.

    In addition to the two plantations in the area (see Doug48s great page) there are a few buildings of historical and/or architectural interest near the courthouse. This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as are the museum buildings.
