About Mississippi

Also known as the Magnolia State, Mississippi has an abundance of magnolia flowers and trees in the state.

The state capital of Mississippi is Jackson.

About Mississippi - Mississippi Weather:
Find out more about Mississippi before you travel there.


Native Americans of the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes originally occupied the Jackson area.

In 1863 the city was nicknamed Chimneyville after it was destroyed by Union troops under General William T. Sherman.

The recovery after the war was slow, until gas was discovered nearby in the 1930s.

Jackson is still a sleepy town today, although the population has swelled and there are many places of interest relating to its history, and a number of notable mansions to visit.

The MGC routinely receives inquiries about the win/hold percentage and casino patronage and investments in the state-regulated casinos.
