The Private John Allen National Fish Hatchery is a scenic outdoor facility where the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service propagate native fish for use in restocking programs. Each year, millions of fish are hatched here.
A 1904 Victorian house which was the home to hatchery superintendents for many years is located at the site. The grounds of the hatchery are beautifully manicured with turn-of-the-century plantings. Reminisce as you walk through Grandmother’s Garden and the wildlife area, which has been planted with foliage to attract nature’s friends. The house is now supervised and maintained by the Tupelo Garden Club and is available for teas, weddings, luncheons, picnics and other events. Tours are available upon request.
