Anyone who has artifacts found at the Jaketown site and would like to
loan or donate them to the new Jaketown Museum in Belzoni please contact
Tom Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 662-207-7831. The Museum will open with artifacts from a few local collectors, but we know
there are lots more out there and we want to show Jaketown for the
important and unique site that it is. Let's all get behind and support
this effort to preserve a part of Mississippi's history. Also, if anyone
knows the whereabouts of the tablet pictured on the front cover of
Geoffrey Lehmann's archaeological report on the Jaketown Site, please
contact Tom Turner.
