Anderson Landing, Mississippi

Anderson Landing is an unincorporated community in Coahoma County, Mississippi, United States.

The settlement is located on Desoto Lake. Prior to 1942, Desoto Lake was part of the contiguous Mississippi River, and Anderson Landing was a riverport on the south shore of "Sunflower Bend".

History

During the 1890s, Anderson Landing was the part of the Wilkerson's Plantation, and the landing was used to ship cotton.

In 1942, the United States Army Corps of Engineers removed Sunflower Bend from the course of the Mississippi River. The resulting oxbow lake was named "Desoto Lake".
