Medgar Evers Home Museum

The Evers family home, the site of the assassination of Medgar Evers in 1963, is now a museum, operated by Tougaloo College. It contains period furnishings, exhibits, and Evers family photographs. The home was used in the film “Ghosts of Mississippi,” which tells the story of the 1994 retrial and conviction of Evers’s killer, Byron de la Beckwith.
