c. 1828. The Cartney-Hunt House, the oldest brick house in North Mississippi, was built for one of Columbus' first merchants. This Federal-style structure won awards for its restoration in 1982 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located on Columbus' historic Southside, it is operated as a bed & breakfast inn.
This Greek Revival home, designed by William Turner, was used as headquarters for General McPherson during Grant's occupation of Oxford in 1862. Molly Turner Orr gathered a fire brigade to save the home in 1864 after being set aflame by occupying Union troops. Nearly a century later, Cedar Oaks was moved 2.2 miles from its original location when it was threatened with demolition. Currently open for pre-arranged groups only.

A leisurely drive down Corinth's tree-lined streets or perhaps a stroll down a shaded sidewalk can conjure memories of a time when homebuilding was an art form and front porches were the heart of a neighborhood. Many picturesque Antebellum, Victorian and Craftsman structures mark time as they offer a history of architectural design stretching from the 1850's into the 1930's. The structures of Historic Downtown offer a kaleidoscope of style and ornate decor. The nostalgia of that vibrant era, when life was centered around the Courthouse Square and election returns were written in soap on storefront windows, still lingers. The walking tour of Corinth's Historic Downtown includes Mississippi Historical Landmarks and National Historic Landmarks.
