Corinth, Mississippi Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Founded in 1854, Corinth was originally named Cross City, representing its location as a railroad junction point. During the Civil War, hundreds of thousands of Union soldiers occupied the town.

Corinth today is a wonderful historic town, featuring 16 National Historic Landmarks and much military history. "The Center," situated in Corinth's popular Battery Robinett (a Union fort) interprets the 1862 campaign for Corinth. Every October, the Battle of Corinth, the bloodiest fought in Mississippi, is reenacted. The Corinth National Cemetery, comprised of nearly 6,000 graves, offers a quiet reminder of this dreadful time.

Visitors should make a quick stop at The Curlee House, built in 1857, which served as headquarters for four Confederate Generals during the Civil War. History buffs should not miss the Northeast Mississippi Museum. The building houses various displays of Civil War artifacts, maps, and an excellent collection of photographs. Corinth's proximity to Shiloh Military Park (located just 22 miles from Corinth in Shiloh, TN) makes a side trip to this popular military park a great choice.

Those who enjoy hiking and biking will fall in love with Corinth. Its approximately 20 miles of trials curve in and out of historic areas, and offer an exceptional opportunity to investigate special military earthworks- constructed during the Civil War to serve as fortifications around Corinth. Today, the earthworks are the best preserved in the country, and are acknowledged as National Historic Landmarks.

When lunchtime calls, the adventurous type will enjoy Corinth's specialty menu item, named a "slug burger." This burger made of a mixture of beef and breading which is then deep-fat fried to a golden brown. Standard toppings for the slug burger are mustard, pickle and lots of onion.

Corinth is located in the very northeast corner of MS, at the intersection of Interstates 72 and 45, just moments south of the Tennessee boarder.
