The Martha Coker Green House® Homes in Yazoo City provide a caring atmosphere for elders in need of skilled nursing care
Located in central Mississippi where the Delta meets the hills, historic Yazoo City is a quiet city surrounded by forested hills on one side and sprawling plantations on the other. The community boasts a number of nationally known “favorite sons,” including Governor and Mrs. Haley Barbour and comedian Jerry Clower.
The Martha Coker Green House® Homes provide a caring atmosphere for elders in need of skilled nursing care. This state of the art facility holds the distinction of being America’s first stand-alone Green House® skilled nursing facility. Martha Coker Home has also been designated an official Eden Alternative Community, which promotes a living environment rich in variety and spontaneity. Residents and employees work together as a team, and as a family, to erase the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom that rob so many elders of life.
 We invite you to visit our beautiful new facilities and discover the future of elder care!

Local Information

Yazoo County—where picturesque hills meet broad, open fields—has struck visitors for almost two centuries, providing, scenic vistas and a diverse economic base. 
Yazoo City attractions offer a historic look at the region. The Oakes African American Cultural Center, the Triangle Cultural Center, Glenwood Cemetery, the B.S. Ricks Memorial Library and the Confederate Memorial Monument lure visitors year-round. For most, the dominant impression of Yazoo County is the sudden appearance of the Delta, stretching to the horizon from the top of the last, long hill from which Yazoo City's Broadway Street descends.
Fire destroyed some Yazoo City homes and most of its businesses in 1904, but the central business district was rebuilt in turn-of-the-century splendor. Local lore places blame for the fire on "The Witch of Yazoo," who was chronicled in prize winning author and Yazoo City native Willie Morris' novel, Good Old Boy. 
The diverse culture of Yazoo County has produced a range of notable residents including the late comedian Jerry Clower; authors the late Willie Morris and Zig Ziglar; actress Stella Stevens and blues singers Gatemouth Moore and Jack Owens.
Yazoo City is host to the annual Jerry Clower Festival.  This event offers something for all ages, including arts and crafts, clowns, children's games and rides, food and lots more. Stages offer diverse entertainment of local, regional and national musical acts, drama, magic and dance. 
Whatever your interest - history; the arts, shopping, recreation or commerce - you'll find what you're looking for where the Delta meets the hills in Yazoo County. Experience the magic! For more information about Yazoo City, visit
