Birthplace of the Frog: An Exhibit of Jim Henson's Delta Boyhood

   The Jim Henson Exhibit is housed in the Washington County Tourist Center/Leland Chamber of Commerce in Leland, Mississippi. The Exhibit was given by The Jim Henson Company as "a gift to the people of Leland."

A separate room is filled with Muppet memorabilia. Pack a lunch and enjoy the park that surrounds the Exhibit -- beautiful Deer Creek -- the birthplace of Kermit the Frog.
