This area is one of the country's most significant sites of prehistoric Indian culture. Thousands of years ago, mound building Indians lived here, utilizing the Mississippi River and its tributaries as a trade link for a continuing habitation. Now the relics of this important culture can be seen at the Winterville Mounds State Park and Museum. Washington County was organized in 1827, the state's 22nd county to organize. It now ranks fourth in population among the state's counties. Greenville, the county seat, was named for Revolutionary war hero Nathaniel Greene. He was a close friend to George Washington, for whom the county is named. During the Civil War, troops landed at Greenville and when fired upon by residents, burned the settlement to the ground. Because this site occupies the highest ground between Memphis, Tennessee and Vicksburg, Mississippi, the city was rebuilt. Greenville has developed into a major port on the Mississippi River, a center for manufacturing, retail shopping hub, gaming and entertainment center and a nucleus of agriculture research facilities and processing plants.

Long before Europeans migrated to America, the Choctaw and Chickasaw Indian nations settled in the Delta’s marsh and swampland. In 1830, the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek was signed by Choctaw Chief Greenwood Leflore, opening the swampland to European settlers. The first settlement on the banks of the Yazoo River was a trading post founded by John Williams in 1830 and known as Williams Landing. In 1844 it was incorporated as “Greenwood,” named after Chief Greenwood Leflore. Growing into a strong cotton market, the key to the city’s success was based on its strategic geographic location in the heart of the Delta. The city served as a shipping point to New Orleans, Louisiana, Vicksburg, Mississippi, Memphis, Tennessee and St. Louis, Missouri. Greenwood continued to prosper until the latter part of the American Civil War. The end of the Civil War in the mid-1860’s and the following year of Reconstruction severely diminished the cotton industry and crippled the city’s previously thriving economy. Greenwood saw very little growth during these years of hardship. The arrival of railroads in the 1880’s saved the city. Once again, Greenwood emerged as a prime shipping point for cotton. Downtown’s Front Street bordering the Yazoo bustled with cotton factors and other related businesses. The city continued to prosper in this way well into the 1940’s. Today, in the twenty-first century, Greenwood is experiencing a renaissance. Its historic downtown boasts dozens of completed renovations with several others in progress. All the while, Greenwood has retained its small-town beauty, Delta personality and deep-South hospitality. (Greenwood CVB)

Grenada County was formed by an act of the Legislature on May 9, 1879 from lands taken from Carroll, Choctaw, Tallahatchie, and Yalobusha Counties. The city of Grenada, which was incorporated on February 27, 1836, was the largest town among the four counties which were pared to form Grenada County, and it was the natural choice to serve as the new county's seat of government. The land from which Grenada County was formed was a part of the Choctaw Indian lands ceded to the United States under the treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in 1830. The earliest known white settlers there were missionaries who established an Indian mission school in 1815 near what later became the town of Elliot. The first town organized in the area was Chocchuma, where the land office for the sale of the Choctaw Indian lands was located. Although the public sale of the Choctaw lands did not start until 1833, two politicians and land speculators. Hiram Runnels and Franklin Plummer were able to purchase choice sites along the banks of the Yalobousha River from individuals who received the land directly under the terms of the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek. The two plots of land were later sold to other parties and eventually became the rival towns of Pittsburg and Tullahoma. Town lots went on sale in Pittsburg in October, 1833 and in Tullahoma in February, 1834. The two towns, which were separated only by a section line (now Line Street in Grenada), both prospered and became sharp rivals. In 1835, Tullahoma attempted to annex Pittsburg, and Pittsburg retaliated with an effort to annex Tullahoma. The governor refused both annexation requests. (Grenada CVB)

In 1887 Gulfport began as the terminus of a railroad linking Jackson, Ms and the maritime trade utilizing the pass at Ship Island. The city was chartered in 1897 and in its first hundred years became the second largest city in Mississippi. Today it remains one of the largest cities in the State and is a busy port, business, and tourism center. It is recovering from hurricane Katrina.
