WINTERVILLE — After more than 40 years, Winterville Mounds is in the process of getting a multi-million dollar facelift that would expand the site and transform the museum into a contemporary and interactive history of Native American heritage in the Mississippi Delta. 

Representatives from the Mississippi Delta National Heritage Area, Mississippi Department of Archives and History, Native American tribes, Greenville-Washington County Convention & Visitors Bureau, state representatives and others met this week in Winterville in an effort to discuss the mission statement of the museum and how to visually tell the story of the Native Americans — past and present— in the Delta.
