Standing as the famous Gateway to the Delta, Yazoo City occupies a fabled spot in Mississippi’s culture and history. Tourists make the drive to Yazoo City a part of their trips through the state because of this rich history. Our famous native children include Gov. Haley Barbour, author Willie Morris, Willie Brown, Ben Williams, and comedian Jerry Clower. A visit can astound and delight all interested visitors because of our historic architecture and an irrepressible down home feeling that permeates the town.
