Today, this subtle, rebellious spirit of her residents still lies under the surface as young families forsake the ubiquitous surroundings of large, suburban cities for a slower pace of life.

Travel back to the late 1800’s through exhibits depicting the life and daily activities of our ancestors. Landrum’s Homestead & Village is a unique educational experience for groups of all ages. Our mission is to increase the desire to learn, develop a sense of wonder, and intensify the appreciation for heritage.
Landrum’s is partnered with the USDA Forrest Service and the Mississippi Forestry Commission. Together we have created an educational display on the Civilian Conservation Corps and reforestation history of South Mississippi. The exhibit also covers fire towers, artifacts, and forest fires. Our displays show the forest as it is today and develops an understanding of the need for conservation and preservation.
