Owner description: Historic Jefferson College was the birthplace of Mississippi’s statehood in 1817. Established in 1802, the school was the first institution of higher learning chartered in the Mississippi Territory. Today, the site operates as a museum with several original buildings built between 1819 and 1839, including the East Wing, President’s House, and West Wing.

We got there to late to go inside, however the ground and view from outside were very impressive, so make the time to drive over to the location for sure.

Mississippi became a state in the "front yard" of Jefferson College. Wish we could have gone inside each of the buildings, but I understand restoration is ongoing. Free admission -- great for groups.

Awesome place to visit, it's an old collage and it was used in THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH as WEST POINT. If you come to town you need to see this

Visited during a special event with reenactors, period sutlers, lectures and tours of the facility. It was very educational and fun to visit and see the demonstrations. Jefferson College any time of the year is a step back into history especially for those who follow military history.

It is very interesting to see this old school and grounds. Have to say though that I went because of seeing it on The North and The South. It is The movie set for West Point for George and Ory.
