senatobia

senatobia is small town located in northwest mississippi. senatobia is the county seat of tate county mississippi. in 1834 james peters purchased two sections of land from the chickasaw native-american tribe which was to become the town of senatobia. in 1856 a railroad was built through senatobia which had a positive econonomic effect on the town. senatonia was incorporated in 1860. in august 1864 confederate general nathan bedford forrest camped at senatobia just before his famous raid on memphis. during the civil war the senatobia business district was burned twice by union forces. for those interested in victorian architecture the tate county courthouse is worth a look when in downtown senatobia. tate county is a dry county so there is no nightlife or good restaurants in town. there is only two motels in senatobia one of which is in need of repair. senatobia is worth a quick look when traveling on I-55 in northwest mississippi.
