In May 2008, the board of directors of the Mid-South Fair announced that the annual event would move to a new site in Robinsonville, on U. However, mainly because of weather but also because of the poor economy, the fair was instead held at the De Soto Civic Center, and will continue to be until the new fairgrounds site is ready.
Robinsonville is protected by the North Tunica County Fire Protection District, a career fire department that was created in 1997.
In a nod to riverboat gambling, to comply with state law, the casinos are built on floating platforms in the Mississippi River.
The community is situated mostly between the Mississippi River and U. In the first half of the 19th century, this area was developed as cotton plantations, part of what was considered the Mississippi Delta extending north to Memphis and south to Vicksburg. After emancipation, many African Americans continued to work in agriculture in this area.
Robinsonville is the site of nine casino resorts, and at one time generated the third largest gambling revenues in the nation, after Las Vegas, Nevada and Atlantic City, New Jersey, but competition has increased in other locations, including properties owned by Native American tribes and operated on their reservations.
In the early decades of the 20th century, thousands of African Americans migrated north from Mississippi to Chicago and other industrial cities in the Great Migration to leave the violence and oppression of the South, as well as the loss of jobs due to mechanization of agriculture.
The department's equipment includes a 100-foot (31 m) Platform ladder truck (T-405), an Engine (E-4), and a Squad (S-4), which is staffed with a Fire Captain and five Firefighter/EMT's. Beginning in 2007, some Robinsonville residents have tried to incorporate their community into a separate town government, rather than exist under the jurisdiction of Tunica County or move toward annexation into the town of Tunica.
If Robinsonville incorporates, the new town government would be a direct beneficiary of casino tax revenue, enabling construction of municipal government offices.
