The Tishomingo County Historical and Genealogical Society exists to help people connect to the past by collecting, preserving, and sharing history. TCHGS photographs explore the heritage and pioneering spirit of Tishomingo County and its impact on the lives of the people it represents.

The Old Courthouse is designated a Mississippi Landmark under the provisions of the Mississippi Antiquities Act of 1972. It is also registered in the National Register of Historic Places (#73001026). The original courthouse was an early example of Romanesque Revival architecture with Second Empire style influences.

The Tishomingo County Historical & Genealogical Society became stewards of the building in 2003. Their mission is to restore the historic Tishomingo County Courthouse to its original grandeur.
