Corinth, MS - Waits Jewelry

Waits Jewelry and Fine Gifts - This is the oldest business in Corinth dating from 1865. The store’s second generation of ownership was Earnest J. Waits, a true “renaissance man.” Not only was he a watchmaker and jeweler, but he constructed an “aeroplane” from plans in Popular Mechanics and its flights in Corinth were the first in Mississippi and probably in the Deep South. He built an early wireless telegraph, an X-ray machine, and painted beautiful seasonal murals in the building. A small area of the store is dedicated to him and his wife Eugenia who was the last family member to own the Store in 2004. Photo by Kathy Weiser-Alexander.
