Kosciusko, Mississippi by Unknown author is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0
Kosciusko is a city in Attala County, Mississippi, United States. The population was 7,402 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Attala County. Kosciusko is located on the Natchez Trace Parkway, northeast of Jackson. It is named for the U.S. and Polish-Lithuanian general Tadeusz Kościuszko, who assisted United States military efforts during the American Revolution. However, the Anglicized name of the city omits the "z". Kosciusko was originally named Red Bud Springs for one of three natural springs that were present in the city. Kosciusko was the home of Magnolia Bible College, and the birthplace for several notable people, including Oprah Winfrey and James Meredith.
