Hammond-Routt House

109 S. Natchez Street
Kosciusko, MS

Just 2 blocks from the court square, this home is located on the original Natchez Trace traversed by the Choctaw Indians, early settlers and Old Hickory, himself, General Andrew Jackson. He and the Tennessee Volunteers camped nearby at the site of a natural spring (about 100 feet due north of this property) following their resounding victory at the Battle of New Orleans. The 1837 structure on the site was home to Confederate war veteran, William Jesse Taylor Hammond, who survived to establish several businesses vital to the community including the Kosciusko Ice and Coal Company in 1896.

There is a lovely portico and one available guest room with reproduction antique twin beds, period antiques, and a private bathroom. Indoor bike racks are available for guest use.
