Courthouse in Kosciusko
Courthouse in Kosciusko

Named after Tadeusz Kosciusko, a Polish General who served as a military engineer in the American Revolutionary War, Kosciusko is one of the oldest remaining settlements on the Natchez Trace.

Located in the center of Mississippi, the town was once a campsite for travelers making the long trip from Natchez to Nashville by way of the Natchez Trace. With its historic downtown square and over 100-year-old Attala County Courthouse, Kosciusko has been designated as one of America’s 100 best small towns.

Today, visitors stop to enjoy some of the nationally known antique shops, restaurants and the bed and breakfast inn. Key attractions include L.V. Hull’s Yard Art, which features a unique collection of eclectic works by one of the town’s artisans, and the Kosciusko Museum and Information Center, which offers information about the town and other Mississippi attractions. Kosciusko also celebrates being the birthplace of Oprah Winfrey, and is the site of the annual Natchez Trace Festival, held the last Saturday in April.
