Local Information

Hattiesburg is a friendly, affordable place to live.  It’s famous hallmark is the hospitality of her people.

Hattiesburg is home to the University of Southern Mississippi and abounds in cultural opportunities and special events. The artistic and cultural flair of Hattiesburg is most notable in the Historic Downtown District, which features many architectural gems, such as the historic Saenger Theater and the Hattiesburg Historic Train Depot. Unique shops, galleries and tasty local dining round out this vibrant community.

Unique to Hattiesburg, the Longleaf Trace, Mississippi's only certified Rails to Trails Conservancy project, is a multi-use recreational trail spanning 42 miles from Hattiesburg to Prentiss, MS. The Longleaf Trace Gateway, where information and bike rentals are available, can be found on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi.

Finally, a truly patriotic experience awaits at our two military museums. The Mississippi Armed Forces Museum, located on the base of Camp Shelby just south of Hattiesburg, features more than 6,000 artifacts spanning America's military history. The museum displays interactive and life-sized dioramas such as the "live" WWI battle trench and a full-scale Vietnam medical mission. The African American Military History Museum is housed in one of the last remaining USO buildings created specifically for the African American military population. A walk through this relic immerses visitors in a hands-on experience of valor and bravery exhibited by this pioneering group of soldiers.
