About Us: The former U. S. Post Office in Ferriday has been completed renovated and outfitted as the Delta Music Museum. Located in Concordia Parish and just a few minutes away from historic Natchez, Mississippi. Ferriday was home place to entertainers Jerry Lee Lewis and Mickey Gilley, evangelist Jimmy Swaggart, blues trombonist Pee Wee Whittaker, General Claire Chennault, and newscaster Howard K. Smith, and is now home to the new museum, dedicated on March 2, 2002. Previously known as the Ferriday Museum and housed in a small bank building, the Delta Music Museum is a new addition to the Louisiana Department of State's Historic Museums Program.The city acquired the former post office property as a purchase/donation from the Ater Brothers of Ferriday. Legislation introduced by Representative Bryant O. Hammett, Jr. passed the Legislature in 2001 adding the new museum to Secretary of State Fox McKeithen's museums program. Under this arrangement the city will own the facility and contribute towards the budget, but it will be funded, operated and staffed by the state. Picture of post office boxes The building, constructed in 1939-40, has been completely remodeled to accommodate the museum's exhibits, and includes space for live performances and future interactive exhibits. Many of the building's original features have been restored and help to create a special nostalgic ambience for visitors. For example, vintage post office boxes line the museum's lobby, just as they did when it was first constructed. The new museum consists of interpretative and interactive exhibits focusing on the history, music and culture of the Louisiana-Mississippi Delta region. Music galleries with interactive music kiosks, mannequins and more are planned.
