COLLINSWOOD MUSEUM, PONCHATOULA
THE COLLINSWOOD MUSEUM
A Choctaw term for "hanging hair," probably a reference to the abundant Spanish moss on many trees, became a name given to a local stream and much later to the town of Ponchatoula. A village, a town, and now a prosperous city developed along the railroad tracks.
History is a fleeting thing with knowledge and information about our community's heritage lost with each passing generation. Yet, a modest frame building located on East Pine Street near the railroad tracks that called forth Ponchatoula, holds an array of interesting items which reveal our colorful past and preserve these items for future generations.
The iconic one room Collinswood schoolhouse contains a wealth of historic treasures beginning with Native American artifacts from centuries long past, and continues with displays and information on the railroad, lumber, and strawberry industries which have helped develop our community. The Collinswood Museum is owned by the City of Ponchatoula and administered by a volunteer group of concerned citizens.
The museum is open Friday through Sunday and the staff welcomes visitors on those days and on other days by appointment. To schedule a group tour or for further information call 386-4476. The museum staff looks forward to your visit!
