Local Como

Mississippi Fred McDowell gravesite: This world-renowned blues artist was a native of Como, personal mentor of Bonnie Raitt, and a major influence on some of today's biggest recording stars, including Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. He is buried in the Cemetary, directions…

The Como Gin: A tribute to the declining art of agricultural science, this gin features the latest, state-of-the-art ginning and baling technology within a decades-old building. Many gins around the Southeast and Southwest have closed in recent years, but the Como Gin survives. It is fully operational, often 24-hours a day, during the peak of cotton harvest season between late September and late November.

Emily Pointer Public Library: Surprising large for such a small town, the public library is a source of pride for the community. A lovely garden and courtyard to the north of the building invites visitors to sit and relax. This tiny park is accented with tiles made by members of the community.
