Welcome to Lee County, Mississippi


Nestled in the hills of northeast Mississippi, Lee County offers an attractive combination of small-town living with easy access to urban and suburban attractions. Lee County provides an array of activities while serving as a vital regional hub for health care, retail, manufacturing, and various other sectors.

North Mississippi Medical Center, which is the largest non-metropolitan hospital in the nation, serves as the focal point for North Mississippi Health Services and its 22-county health care system. The Mall at Barnes Crossing and its adjacent shopping centers draw thousands of people on a daily basis for shopping and employment. Cooper Tire and Rubber Company, Lane Furnishing Industries, and other industrial tenants serve as bedrocks of the local and regional economies as they attract workers from across northeast Mississippi and its surrounding areas.

Lee County’s public school systems receive annual recognition for their quality and provide excellent opportunities for students to expand their academic horizons. The main campuses of Mississippi’s premier research universities (the University of Mississippi and Mississippi State University) and one of the State’s fastest-growing community colleges (Itawamba Community College) are within close proximity of Lee County and satellite campuses of the University of Mississippi and Itawamba Community College are located in Tupelo.

Lee County’s relatively mild climate provides opportunities for outdoor activities throughout the year and there are a wide variety of cultural and recreational offerings for area residents and visitors. Whether you are visiting the birthplace of Elvis Presley, attending the Tupelo Symphony Orchestra, or taking a trip down memory lane at the Tupelo Automobile Museum, Lee County provides a prime destination.
