Tishomingo County Historical and Genealogical Society


Millions of feet have walked across the lawn of the historic Tishomingo County courthouse in Iuka. The courthouse is a symbol of Tishomingo County, and in an effort to memorialize citizens, both past and present, the Tishomingo County Historical & Genealogical Society is presenting a Brick Memorial Project.

A brick memorial project will reflect a sense of timelessness of our heritage. Personalized bricks will symbolize the people that have made, and continue to make, Tishomingo County such an extraordinary County. Become part of this rich history by having your name, or the name of a loved one, inscribed in a commemorative brick at the courthouse. It may be inscribed with an individual or family name, creating a lasting memorial. You may also choose to honor or memorialize someone who has made a difference in your life, such as a parent, professor, classmate, spouse or friend.

The Society invites you to participate in this ongoing historic courthouse Brick Memorial campaign by purchasing an individual brick.

The cost per brick includes an inscription that consists of 18 characters (including spaces) per line. All bricks are laser-engraved for lasting letter clarity. The bricks will be installed in 3 x 3 sections, starting on the front lawn.

Update: We are pleased to report that the commemorative brick project has officially kicked off. Drawings are almost complete and awaiting final approval. We will begin our first phase of the memorial project at the corner of Fulton and Quitman Streets (which is our northeast corner) where we plan to develop a plaza area around the existing monument.
