Haywood County Agriculture

Brownsville-Haywood County has a deep, rich southern heritage in architecture, agriculture and the arts.

A simple drive through the city and county will pique the interest of any early-American history buff, as he or she sees the homes, buildings and churches, many of which date back to the early 19th century.

The county’s economy has long been based on agriculture and the county abounds with beautiful farmland that continues to be fertile, producing crops of cotton, corn, wheat, soybeans, other grains and vegetables and fruits. This part of the county’s heritage is depicted in the Cotton Museum Room at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center.
