Stay at a Bed and Breakfast in Brookhaven

Come stay at a member inn of the Bed and Breakfast Association of Mississippi and discover why Brookhaven-Lincoln County is one of the best places in the world to visit and live in southwest Mississippi, the state’s heartland. Brookhaven, the county seat of Lincoln County, is also known as the “Homeseeker’s Paradise,” a name adopted in the early 1900s as a result of a local contest to find a nickname best describing the community. South Jackson Avenue is commonly referred to as “Mississippi’s Most Victorian Street.” The charming downtown streets and famous Brookway Boulevard of Brookhaven are a shopper’s paradise. Brookhaven is home to the Mississippi School of the Arts. People enjoy local events such as festivals, parades, historic tours, musical and artistic endeavors, a community symphony and a community theatre. See the city website here.

Brookhaven is home to the Mississippi School of the Arts, located on the historic Whitworth campus in the heart of the city. MSA welcomed its first students in August 2003 partly with inspiration from former Mississippi First Lady Pat Fordice, but mostly with the energy and determination of the people here. An urban park running along the rail lines through the center of town include an 1825 historic log cabin on display and the historic train depot houses the Military Memorial Museum with photos, artifacts, personal items of area veterans as well as military equipment dating back to WW I. A love of entertainment, shared laughter and a true appreciation of both the past and present defines the culture of this community.
