Description:

Our Town Center Historic District was named a 2012 Best Old House Neighborhood by This Old House Magazine!

Yazoo City, originally named Manchester, was incorporated in 1830 and became the county seat of Yazoo County in 1848. The steadily growing river town had a major setback in 1904 when a fire destroyed almost all the town’s commercial buildings and half of its finest homes. However, from the ashes of this devastating fire arose a new beginning for Yazoo City. The downtown section was rebuilt within a year, with a uniformity and quality of design that has merited a listing of the entire district on the National Register of Historic Places. Today the historic downtown district boasts a variety of upscale shops and boutiques.
