Crossroads Museum

221 North Fillmore Street, Corinth, MS 38834, USA

The Crossroads Museum has found a home in the newly renovated 1918 Corinth Depot. This depot sits adjacent to one of the most important patches of land in the Western Theatre of the Civil War - the Corinth Railroad Crossroads. Here, the Memphis & Charleston and Mobile & Ohio Railroads crossed, making 1862 Corinth an important location for troop movement, supply and communication lines. The Battle of Shiloh was fought as an offensive measure to keep the Federal Army from controlling the railroad. However, after the Siege of Corinth, the Federals did just gain control. The subsequent Battle of Corinth was fought as the Confederate's last effort to retake the crossings from the Federals. The fall of Corinth's railroad crossing was the beginning of the end of the War in the West. Also located on the museum property is the site of the Tishomingo Hotel, which served as a hospital during the war.
