Haywood County Museum and College Hill

The Haywood County Museum, formerly Haywood High School and before that the Brownsville Baptist Female College, houses not only historical treasures of the community, but the Haywood County Sports Museum and a valuable and unique Lincoln collection. It is located in the city’s historic district at the College Hill Complex.

Members of the Brownsville-Haywood County Arts Council work hard year-round to provide a variety of cultural venues for the community. In recent years, audiences delighted in the talent of local actors in the comedy-musical “Annie.” The council has also presented the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Christmas at College Hill, other plays and programs, and sponsors an “Arts in Education” program in all of the Haywood County Schools.

This organization joins many others that enhance the community’s social offerings, as do several patriotic and historical organizations that preserve the history of our veterans and promote Americanism. In addition, there are number of charitable organizations that the community supports to help those in need.
