Built and maintained by the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi, this facility along the Natchez Trace has offered exhibits and live demonstrations of area folk artists for more than 25 years. Of particular interest are the works of native Choctaw Indians, whose leather goods, pewter ware, and basketry are as functional as they are beautiful. On Saturdays, from spring through fall, Choctaw basket weavers, wood carvers, quilters and more are on hand throughout the day to demonstrate their skills.

The unassuming home of Civil Rights activist and martyr Medgar Evers is located northwest of downtown Jackson on Margaret Walker Alexander Drive, a street bearing the name of one who continued the martyr's fight after his passing. This historic location is also the site of Evers' 1963 assassination. Although Evers is buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C., the preserved home stands as a moving memorial to his sacrifice. Inside, relics of his life and work reveal insight into the man and his struggle, while various displays tell the story of the Civil Rights triumphs and tragedies that took place through the years in Mississippi.
Well-known gallery owner Mike Nunnery likes what he does for a living, and it shows in the way he picks his gallery artists.

In warm weather be sure to take a quick peek at Mike's own artwork, which is his rambling flower garden out back.
Local artists extraordinaire Karl and Mildred Wolfe have long thrilled Jackson with their takes on the area through various artistic mediums. Among the displays, you will find original artwork from the Wolfes, plus limited edition prints, hand-crafted furniture, and hand-carved mirrors.

Detailing a century and a half of fire fighting triumphs and tragedies, the Fire Museum features a stunning array of artifacts, uniforms, helmets and fire apparatuses.
