So Close to Memphis … Yet So Deliciously Delta
Even though it’s just a hop, skip and a jump from Memphis, Tennessee, DeSoto County still portrays the essence and charm of the Delta through its music, art, creativity and history.
Many famous and creative minds have called DeSoto County home, including John Grisham, whose former law office can be found in Southaven, Elvis Presley, whose Circle G Ranch still stands in Horn Lake and current Nesbit resident, Jerry Lee Lewis.
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.
Modern artist's work can be found in galleries, book shops, artist studios and boutique stores throughout the county.
With unique shops, a farmer’s market and live music events, 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. It will be hard to find anything comparable elsewhere in the Delta.
