Delta-style family fun could include the indoors, the outdoors, alpacas, Native Americans, or even America’s favorite Muppet.
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: The Preserve is on U.S. Highway 82 West at Cypress Lane. It is one-half mile from the Mississippi Welcome Center, and a few miles from the bridge that crosses the Mississippi River. Greenville Cypress Preserve is a sixteen acre tract of land that protects three stands of ancient Cypress trees. There is an open pavillion and walking trail on site. By an observation deck with signage, the trail goes through the open meadow and over the slough, and through the mixed woodlands.
Since the late 1930s, the Greenville Garden Club has worked to save the Cypress Preserve. Now the preserve is a memorable experience that showcases the magnificence and magic of this tract of virgin cypress trees, which have graced this area for more than 100 years. Visit their website for more information on this unique preserve.

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.
