This is the home of slain civil rights leader, Medgar Evers. You have to call Tougaloo College in order to arrange a tour. You can visit the well preserved house and see the site where is his family lived and bask in history.

We were passing through Jackson and did not have time to schedule a tour of the Medgar Evers home. We decided that we would stop by anyway and at least view the home from the outside. I am so glad that we stopped by. It was amazing just to see the house. We will definitely go back another time and... More

Curated by a great woman who knew the man, this cannot be missed. We were doing a Civil Rights History tour of the South and this was a gem of a find. Read about the man, then come see where he gave his life for true freedom. Medgar Evers was an American hero, and this is a great memoir of... More

Great experience with people of all ages. It really allowed us to place ourselves back during the time of the assassination of Mr. Evers. The home is well-kept and important to American history.

It was moving to see where Medgar Evens was assassinated. The details about the incident are well explained. If it is closed, there is still enough information outside to understand the attack.

Our guide Minnie was beyond wonderful: so much knowledge about the Evers family, the city, the times, the neighborhood, and her own experience as a young person in Jackson. She was also gracious in finding a time for multiple groups to gather for the tour. I'm grateful that TripAdvisor praised this tour, as it seemed harder to find on the... More

It was a pleasure to experience this tour . When your in the home you can still see the bullet mark in the wall and refrigerator. Also walking up to the door of the house you can see the stain of the blood which looks like rust in the driveway. Minnie was amazing she told us so much about Mr.Evers... More

The home where Medgar Evers was executed is now a museum, and seeing the location and reading about the situation is an important and moving site to visit for those who care about the Civil Rights Movement in the USA.

For anyone who's not aware of Medgar Evers (and for those who are) this is definitely a stop worth making. You can actually still see the bloodstains on the concrete from where he was shot, not to mention that the rest of the house is still in excellent condition. The women who run the place are extremely knowledgeable and kind... More
