Walthall County is referred to as the CREAM PITCHER OF MISSISSIPPI because it is the
primary dairy county in the state, leading in milk production and the number of dairies.
Conveniently located in southwest Mississippi, Walthall County is home to 15,000+ residents
who contribute to the area’s rich agricultural history, from dairy and poultry production, to the
abundant pine harvesting. Don’t let the population numbers fool you though. Over 600,000
people live within 55 miles of Tylertown which gives us the ability to provide a quality
workforce for the needs of almost any size company.
We can’t prove that southern hospitality was invented in Tylertown, but we suspect it was.
Our folks are some of the nicest that you will find anywhere.
Tylertown offers an appealing climate for the family as well as business. Ideally located
between Jackson, MS and New Orleans, LA, the city and county offer the pleasant lifestyle of
a progressive small town but with easy access to many parts of the south. Four-lane HWY 98
makes traveling to Hattiesburg, MS and accessing I-59 a pleasant and speedy route. I-55 and
McComb, MS is less than 20 minutes from Tylertown via four-lane Hwy 98.
Our southern hospitality is genuine and we welcome you to call us home - for yourself or your
