About Mississippi

Mississippi is a state located in the Southern United States. Mississippi has been ranked the most religious state in the country since 2011.

Jackson is the state capital and largest city. Mississippi is the 32nd most extensive and the 31st most populous of the 50 United States.   

Today, its catfish aquaculture farms produce the majority of farm-raised catfish consumed in the United States. Mississippi is bordered on the north by Tennessee, on the east by Alabama, on the south by Louisiana and a narrow coast on the Gulf of Mexico; and on the west, across the Mississippi River, by Louisiana and Arkansas.

Jackson

Jackson is the capital and since 1944 the largest city of the state of Mississippi. Jackson is one of two county seats of Hinds County, with the city of Raymond being the other.

Jackson is a city famous for its music, including Gospel, Blues, and R&B. It is home to the world-famous Malaco Records recording studio, and many notable musicians hail from Jackson.

Jackson received its first Mississippi Blues Trail designation in honor of the former "Subway Lounge" on Pearl Street.

The ceremony was held there and the historic marker placed on the former site of the Summers Hotel, where the Subway Lounge was located in the basement level. The current slogan for the city is "Jackson, Mississippi: City with Soul."

Mississippi River

Mississippi River is the chief river of the largest drainage system in North America. The Mississippi ranks as the fourth longest and tenth largest river in the world.

The river either borders or passes through the states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Native Americans long lived along the Mississippi River and its tributaries. Most were hunter-gatherers or herders, but some, such as the Mound builders, formed prolific agricultural societies. The arrival of Europeans in the 1500s changed the native way of life as first explorers, then settlers, ventured into the basin in increasing numbers.
