  • Medgar and Myrlie's home is a must visit. I never cried so much just from the energy, the historic significance, or the life you could feel that lived there. If you visit please leave a generous donation. Private donations really keep this home open to educate future generations.
  • Visiting the Medgar Evers house was a highlight of our Southern civil rights history road trip...thanks to Ms. Minnie Watson, the docent who made the whole visit worthwhile. She knew Medgar Evers personally, she lives in the community, she narrates both the man and his time in history, as well as bringing the story to the present day. Ms. Watson makes this 'historic' site seem very real and very present-day. Of all the houses, plantations, and museums we visited this is by far the smallest--it's a very modest ranch-style home---but the story and the man are as powerful as it gets.It is imperative that you call ahead and book an appointment. This is not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear history and interpretation from someone who lived it.
