Shubuta was incorporated in 1865. It had become a trading post community in the 1830s. In that decade under the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek, the Choctaw people ceded the land to the United States, pursuant to the Indian Removal Act. They were forced to move west of the Mississippi River and their traditional homeland was made available to European Americans for settlement. The largest Choctaw village near present day Shubuta was the town of Yowani. Shubuta started growing more rapidly in the 1850s after being connected to other communities by the railroad.
At one time the largest town between Meridian, Mississippi, and Mobile, Alabama, Shubuta attracted people from 40 miles (64 km) around to shop at its many mercantile businesses. The first record of the word "Shubuta" appears on Bernard Roman's Map of 1772, a copy of which appears in Riley's History of Mississippi. Riley wrote the name as "Chobuta", which means "smoky water" in the Choctaw language.
The first newspaper in the area was the Mississippi Messenger, established by Judge Charles A. Stovall in 1879. Six houses within Shubuta are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These are listed in National Register of Historic Places listings in Clarke County, Mississippi, which provides a map link locating them all.
In 1918, two black brothers, Major and Andrew Clark were hanged from a bridge in Shubuta, along with two black, pregnant sisters, Alma (age 16) and Maggie House (age 20), allegedly for the murder of a retired dentist, Dr. H. L. Johnson. When the NAACP asked for an investigation, they were told by Mississippi Governor Theodore Bilbo to "go to hell". An independent investigation by Walter White and other detectives revealed that Maggie House was pregnant by the son of the dentist who had supposedly been murdered, and that he had jealously threatened Major Clark, who had a relationship with Maggie, demanding that he end the relationship. The lynching was premeditated and coordinated. Deputy Sheriff Crane colluded with the mob to provide access to the victims, and power was cut off to the city to provide credence to witness' later claims to be unable to identify the mob's members. Maggie was smashed in the face with a wrench. All four were thrown from the bridge, but Maggie caught on to the bridge and survived the initial attempt on her life. She was thrown from the bridge a second time, and again managed to grab on. The mob hauled her up a third time, and were finally successful in killing her. When the victims were buried the next day, witnesses reported seeing Alma House's unborn baby moving in the womb.
In 1942, Ernest Green, a fourteen year old black boy, along with Charlie Lang, aged fifteen, were seen speaking to Dorothy Martin, a white girl, while she was walking home from school. Although they did not attempt to touch the girl, this was classified as "attempted rape". The boys were arrested by Clarke County Sheriff LLoyd McNeal, and appeared before justice of the peace W.E. Eddins. By October 10 the boys were held in the jail at Quitman. On October 12, Quitman Town Marshall G.F. Dabbs handed the boys over to a mob. Consequently, after their genitals were cut off they were hung from the same bridge over the Chickasawhay River. The sheriff told the Pittsburgh Courier that the local people respected law and order, but that "Them niggers is gettin’ uppity, you know.” Sherrif McLean was said to have expressed remorse on his deathbed for the murders of Green and Lang. Walter Atkins asserted in 1942 that the “rickety old span is a symbol of the South as much as magnolia blossoms or mint julep colonels.” As of 2016, the bridge still stands at the end of East Street. The bridge was added to the National List of Historic Places in 1988.
