Corinth’s historic architectural tour allows participants to step back in time

By Carlie Kollath/NEMS Daily Journal

Want to have fun and feel a little smarter when you’re done? Try the self-guided architectural tour of historic Corinth.
The Corinth Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has free tour guides at its downtown office (215 N. Fillmore St.), plus they are at the state’s welcome center off of Highway 45.
The tour can be walked, driven or biked. It has more than 50 stops. The downtown business owners are used to visitors, so feel free to poke around and ask questions.
