Built in 1955, the county jail remained in use until 1978. Civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner were held here after being arrested in 1964. On June 21, 1966, a voter registration march, led by Ralph Abernathy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stopped here before moving to the Neshoba County Courthouse. This is the third structure built on this site to serve as county jail. The first being a timber structure built in 1836, which burned in 1906.
