The Corinth Railway Junction and the Crossroads Museum

The Corinth Railway Junction and the Crossroads Museum

This image shows the railway junction that made Corinth such a valuable target, during the Civil War. The viewer is standing on the tacks that were used by the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, looking toward the west. Today, these tracks are used by the Norfolk Southern Railway Company. The signal lights mark a railroad junction; the tracks heading to the right are now leased by the West Tennessee Railroad Corporation, and those to the left are used by the Kansas City Southern Railway Company. Today, the train station building houses the Crossroads Museum.
