Holloway-Polk House is the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in Jefferson Davis County. Blacks purchased land in Mt. Carmel and surrounding area in the early 1900s and maintained a thriving self-contained community with all essential services and goods. The Holloway-Polk House, facing north on a tree-shaded lawn, is the community’s only remaining antebellum structure. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
