The Florewood State Park is a state park and a recreation area in Greenwood, Mississippi. It is located near the Yazoo River and right in the heart of the cotton country.

The main attraction at the Florewood State Park is its reproduction of a 1850s Mississippi cotton plantation. Also known as the Florewood River Plantation State Park, the site represents the mid nineteenth century Mississippi Delta cotton industry. It has a mansion, a museum with Whitney gin, blacksmith?s, potter?s, and candle maker?s shops, as well as a smokehouse. Regular events and demonstrations are also held at the site complete with costumed interpreters. Visitors can even help pick cotton during the fall.

The Florewood State Park is currently closed for renovations, but they will re-open real soon.
