Jim Buck Ross Museum


The Jim Buck Ross Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum/National Agricultural Aviation Museum is a 39-acre complex that traces key technological and economic events in agriculture and forestry that changed American life. The exhibits span three eras of agricultural technology, including such engineering innovations as presses, cotton pickers, steel-wheeled tractors, and 19th-century cotton gins. The museum also exhibits aircraft and equipment used in the early days of crop dusting. Living history museums represent a late 19th-century farm and a 1920s town, with many authentic structures that were relocated from nearby communities.
