Woodall Mountain is the highest point in the state of Mississippi at 807 feet (246 m).  It is located in Tishomingo county in the northeastern part of the state, just southwest of Iuka in the westernmost foothills of the southern Appalachians.  

Until 1998, an observation tower stood atop the hill in the middle of the gravel circle. A climb to the top gave an encompassing view of the surrounding area, and was an excellent vantage point to watch the town of Iuka’s fireworks displays. By the time of the towers’ removal in 1998, some steps up the tower had rotted and the tower itself showed signs of age.

During the American Civil War it was the site of the Battle of Iuka (September 19, 1862). It is thought to be named for Zephaniah H. Woodall, a former sheriff of Tishomingo county.
