332 North Main Street
Yazoo City, Mississippi
This building, Yazoo’s Main Street School from the time it was built in early 1904, was purchased in 1977 by the Yazoo Library Association through the civic and monetary efforts of citizens and businesses of Yazoo. It now belongs to the city of Yazoo City. The Main Street front is notable for its monumental portico of gigantic modified Ionic columns. The Sam Olden Yazoo Historical Society Museum, the Yazoo Convention and Visitors Bureau, its theater, its displays and its history make it an educational and cultural center for local citizens and for tourists. It is considered by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History to be one of the finest examples of a turn of the twentieth-century school in the state.
