Hands-on History

The Oren Dunn City Museum is housed in a converted dairy barn, which was a part of the internationally known Forest Lake Farms. The museum weaves a beautiful tapestry of what makes Tupelo great, from its humble birth to the present day. Relive the rich history of this All-America City through an eclectic village and its original dogtrot cabin, one-room church and school. Each year the museum hosts the Dudie Burger Festival and the Dogtrot Rockabilly Festival.
