At the onset of the Civil War, there were a few homes located in Tupelo near the intersection of the recently completed Mobile and Ohio Railroad and the Pontotoc-to-Fulton Road, now Main Street. One of those homes was the residence of the John W. Younger family located on this site in a grove of oak and hickory trees. It was common practice for high ranking officers to requisition comfortable quarters in private homes during the war. The Younger Cabin was requisitioned many times, as it was ideally located in relation to the numerous camps scattered around Tupelo. The cabin's central location provided a commanding officer good communications with his subordinates and allowed oversight of troops, supplies and military equipment stationed near the railroad.
