Few things have shaped America's history more than the railroads, so it's appropriate that a museum now resides at the historic crossroads where the Memphis & Charleston and the Mobile & Ohio railroads meet. Back in the 1860s, those railroads gave Corinth a strategic significance that made it a transportation hub during the Civil War. Today, they serve as the framing device for The Crossroads Museum, which is home to countless artifacts that help illustrate Northern Mississippi's colorful history.
The museum?s collection is nothing if not eclectic. Here, you'll find everything from Native American fossils to baseball memorabilia that honors famed ballplayer Don Blasingame, who was born and raised in Corinth. The museum also houses the legendary Dilworth?s Hot Tamales Cart.
Since 1984, skaters have glided across the maple hardwood floor at Magic Wheels Skating. Depending on the time of day, skating sessions might be soundtracked by country or rock, or?on Saturday afternoons?kid-friendly pop music. Sunday nights, the house DJ spins all hip-hop, R&B, and old school, turning the rink into a fun dance party without forcing everyone to do the Lindy Hop, which would be difficult on skates. Birthday parties turn into memorable celebrations at the rink, with party packages that include drinks, ice cream, and food.
