Mississippi: Woodall Mountain (806ft)
Woodall Mountain is the highest natural point in the state of Mississippi at 807 feet (246 m). It is located just off Mississippi Highway 25, south of Iuka. The summit is marked with a National Geodetic Survey triangulation station disk and three radio towers. A sign cautions visitors to prepare for a steep, unpaved, and rocky inclined road approximately a mile in length to the summit.
Atop the hill there is a bench, a high point register, and a gravel circle allowing parking room for several vehicles.
Woodall Mountain was originally called Yow Hill. It was the scene of the Battle of Iuka during the Civil War, on September 19, 1862. Union General William Rosecrans occupied the mountain and used it to launch artillery barrages on the town of Iuka, then under the control of General Sterling Price. The battle was a victory for the Union, although Price slipped away.
The mountain was named after Zephaniah Woodall, who bought the mountain and surrounding land in 1884.
