The Oren Dunn City Museum is housed in a converted dairy barn, which was a part of the internationally known Forest Lake Farms. The museum weaves a beautiful tapestry of what makes Tupelo great from its humble birth to present day. Re-live the rich history of this awarded “All America City” through an eclectic village and its original dogtrot cabin, one-room church and school! Find out more about Tupelo through permanent exhibits including a model of the 1940’s railroad, tornado history, Hospital on the Hill history, Chickasaw cultural history, and the northeast Mississippi fossils! The museum is also located inside Ballard Park where having access to playgrounds, picnic areas, and a lakeside walking trail makes for a great day for any visitors and tour groups. Each year the museum hosts the Dudie Burger Festival and the Dogtrot Rockabilly Festival.
