Muppet creator Jim Henson was born in Greenville and raised in Stoneville, just west of Leland. As a child, he spent hours playing along the banks of Deer Creek. It was here that Henson dreamed of and created the character of Kermit the Frog. A visit to Kermit’s birthplace is filled with the fun and creativity of Jim Henson and all his Muppet friends. The exhibit building also operates as a Washington County Welcome Center.

Directions: Winterville Mounds is located on Mississippi Highway 1, six miles north of intersection of Highway 82 and Highway 1 in Greenville, Mississippi.
A National Historic Landmark, the Indian Mounds at Winterville constitute one of North America’s most significant pre-Columbian archeological sites. Twelve mounds, including the massive 55-foot-tall Temple Mound, contrast dramatically with the flat Delta landscape. The on-site museum tells the story of an advanced North American civilization that once thrived in this location from about A.D. 1000 to 1450.
