About Yazoo City Mississippi


Yazoo City - the county seat and principle city - was originally named Manchester. It was laid out in the 1830s on acreage originally owned by a half French, half Choctaw Indian planter named Greenwood Leflore. The diverse culture of Yazoo County has produced a range of notable residents including the late comedian Jerry Clower; authors the late Willie Morris and Zig Ziglar; actress Stella Stevens and blues singers Gatemouth Moore and Jack Owens. Whatever your interest - history; the arts, shopping, recreation or commerce - you'll find what you're looking for where the Delta meets the hills in Yazoo County. Experience the magic!
