On Sundays and Mondays, the Delta and many other Mississippi locations can provide a sleek selection of unique dining options. Yazoo County is located in the Mississippi Delta, Mississippi, south of Jackson, and is home to hospitality, culture, and unique stories that are unique to its delta. There is the statistical area of Yazoos City, which is about 2,000 square miles and has about 1.5 million inhabitants.
Yazoo County, Mississippi's second-largest county, covers about 1,500 square miles and has about 2.5 million residents. The west side is bounded by Yazoo and the Mississippi Delta, the east side by the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi and includes Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
The city continues to grow with a beautiful new courthouse designed by the same architects who gave Mississippi its first state courthouse - the - in Jackson, Mississippi. A few years ago, the Yazoo County Chamber of Commerce pushed ahead with the construction of the colorful lights that drape the building. The historic YazOO City neighborhood, which flows from the Mississippi into the Gulf of Mexico, offers a variety of shops, restaurants, bars, hotels and other shops, as well as a variety of restaurants.
Like most delta counties in Mississippi, Yazoo's population has grown considerably in recent decades, becoming the second most populous county in Mississippi, behind only Hinds. Like most of the Delta, it is predominantly African-American, down about 11 percent since the 1960s, but still predominantly black. The YazOO City Municipal School District is 98 percent black, at the bottom of the list, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
The city is located on the banks of the Mississippi, the second largest river in the state, south of Yazoo City. The city is located on a river about 30 miles east of Jackson, the capital of Mississippi, and about 60 miles west of Hattiesburg.
Yazoo City is located on the banks of the Mississippi, the second largest river in the state, south of Yazoo City. The old highway section, renamed Mississippi Highway 149, passed through YazOO City before being reconnected to the new US 49W.
The French explorer Robert La Salle, who named the Yazoo River after the Yazoo tribe that lived near the mouth of the river, was named after YazOO City, a town in the northern part of the Mississippi Valley. The bridge spans the YazOO River after French explorer LaSalle named it after him in 1682 after he found a live estuary at its mouth.
In 1820, the Choctaw Nation sold its Northwest lands to the United States under the Doak's Stand Treaty, and the area that is now Yazoo County was purchased by the Choctaws Indians from the State of Mississippi. Yazoo City, which is located in a large area of the Mississippi River, opened for the first time to the colonization of white and black Americans. The converted and modern museum tells the story of this historic city and much more, including memorabilia collected during his stay in Governor Haley Barbour's office, which Yazoosan donated to the former governor. This generous donation has provided a permanent home for the Yazoo Library Association (now the second oldest library association in Mississippi), which was founded in 1952.
The famous country comedian lived in the city for over 30 years before moving to his current home in New Orleans in 1988. Alexander Boarman, a native of Yazoo City, served in the U.S. Army as an infantry officer during World War II and was the first outside Louisiana to stop off on the Louisiana Collegiate Wake Tour. In 2014, Yazoosan, Mississippi, the second largest city in Mississippi and the third largest in America, held a memorial service for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. It is named after the part that was formerly on U-S-49E and was born in this area and served as the site of one of America's first nuclear power plants.
In his short career, Arkansas challenged the Union Navy's control of the Mississippi and helped avert the early fall of Vicksburg, but the war prevented the Yankee fleet, which steamed across the river to Vickburg, from falling early. The Vickersburg campaign lasted until July 4, 1863, and Yazoo City was temporarily occupied and looted six times without supplies. Vickingburg remained a northern citadel and the Union fleets fully controlled the Yazoosan River.
The Yazoo Dam prevented backwater from entering the South Delta, but when the Mississippi and Yazoosan River levels were in the high elevations of the Inner Basin, the gates were closed to prevent the flood from returning to the South Delta. The banks of the Yazoo River overflowed, preventing the water from being pushed into a swollen Mississippi River.
Paddlers using canoes, kayaks or standing paddle boards can follow the Yazoo River into the Mississippi Delta. If the river is higher than 13Vg, it is possible to get to and be in beautiful Centennial Lake via a slide connected to it.
