Washington, Mississippi


Historic Jefferson College, the birthplace of the state of Mississippi, will kick off a two-day bicentennial commemoration with free BBQ plates, live music, and Native American dancing on Friday, September 15, at its second annual Reveille! The site will continue the celebration on Saturday, September 16, with living history on the grounds, tours of historic buildings, the unveiling of a state historical marker, and vintage games for families.

“Delegates to Mississippi’s first constitutional convention met here in the summer of 1817 to draft the constitution that Mississippi was established upon,” said Historic Jefferson College director Robin Person. “We can only turn 200 once, so it’s important that we observe that event in a memorable way.”
