Site of the Mitchell House
A look at Civil War Corinth -
—through the eyes of wartime artists and photographers —
Corinth City Hall now occupies this site, but early in the war the Houston Mitchell family lived in this spacious home. A favorite house among the general officers who served in Corinth at various times, the Mitchell residence was used as headquarters for both Confederate and Union generals.
The Mitchell House served as headquarters for these generals.
