What makes Harrison County, Mississippi beautifully productive? The spirit of the people for one. You won’t find a more dedicated workforce. Then there’s our new infrastructure, all built in the last 10 years to the strictest FEMA construction standards. Power lines, cable and internet are underground for unobstructed views and no power disruption. The advantages continue with the blend of talents and resources in the five cities within Harrison County. Each contributes uniquely while working together to provide opportunities not readily found in most communities.
