The Locale
The Mississippi Delta. The South’s South. This fertile land has been the muse of the great Southern writers. It is a mythic place with a powerful hold over locals and visitors alike. Here, within the historic Delta town of Greenwood, Mississippi is where you’ll find The Alluvian. 

The Name
The hotel name has its roots deep within the region. The Mississippi Delta is considered an alluvial plain, a level land created by extensive amounts of mineral-rich soil deposited for centuries by the great Mississippi River. As lore would have it, Tennessee Williams once referred to the people living on this land as Alluvians.
