Cowles Mead Cemetery

Like many of his generation, Mead came from the east seeking opportunity in the Mississippi Territory. He owned a tavern on the Old Trace near Natchez and held several political offices, including acting governor in 1806. During this time, he ordered the arrest of Aaron Burr for treason but the former Vice President was acquitted. Mead followed the growth of the state and moved to Jackson area. He built his beautiful landscaped home “Greenwood” on the site. Little remains today of his grand estate that burned after his death during the Civil War, except the family cemetery.
