About Us

The M & CC is located in the old library building just east of the Courthouse square in Quitman's large historic district.

The old Library was designed by the famous architect Lloyd Greer and was constructed in 1933.

The City of Quitman owned the building and sold it to Community Clubs, Inc. This group comprises the 13 local civic clubs who joined together to save the old Library Building and create the Historical Museum.
