Desoto County


Just down the road from Memphis, Tennessee, DeSoto County portrays the essence and charm of the Delta through its music, art, creativity and history. Author John Grisham's former law office can be found in Southaven, Elvis Presley's Circle G Ranch still stands in Horn Lake and Jerry Lee Lewis lives in Nesbit.

Looking for blues? Here you’ll find the grave sites of several famous blues musicians including Gus Cannon, Joe Callicott and Memphis Minnie, one of the earliest female blues artists.
Old Towne Olive Branch represents life in DeSoto before it became the fastest growing county in Mississippi. Add this to the one-and-only Brussel's Bonsai Nursery, the largest grower and exporter of Bonsai trees in the nation, and you'll want to be sure to make DeSoto County a priority on your Delta travel itinerary.

Leave the city behind and show your family the joys of nature. Working farms like Cedar Hill Farm offer visitors “down on the farm” adventures that include hayrides, pumpkin patches and vegetable and fruit harvesting. There's little like it in the Delta.
