This is Merrill's Store in Carrolton.  The date to the right side of the door indicates it was established in 1834.  This store is on the south side of the Courthouse square.  Thanks Jackie for submitting this photo.


Update:  As of September 2009, this store is being renovated and restored to be a Museum for U.S. Representative and 2008 Presidential Candidate John McCain from Arizona.  The McCain family has roots in northern Carroll County.   The photo below was taken in Sept. 2009.

Carroll County


I am John Hansen, volunteer County Coordinator for Carroll County, Mississippi.  I have family lines from here and hence my interest in establishing as much information as possible on early Carroll County History.

Web Site:

The Carroll County, Mississippi Genealogical and Historical Web Site was brought online in 1998, and is sponsored by the MSGenWeb Project, a part of the  USGenWeb Project.

This website has been developed to provide research and family history resources for Carroll County, Mississippi ancestry.

New resources are added as made available, so check back often for new content.
