A Contemporary Community At The “Top of Mississippi”
Because of its convenient location, affordability, excellent schools, quality health care, safe environment and progressive city government, Southaven has experienced strong residential and business growth since its incorporation in 1980. The current population is slightly more than 50,000 and growing. More than 5,200 new jobs have been added since 2000, and there are currently more than 1,600 businesses. To round out our community, nearly 100 churches representing dozens of different denominations and family activities provide plenty of opportunities to worship and play together. Civic and service organizations bring the arts and humanities into practice throughout Southaven. An average of 4 new families move into Southaven per day due in part to the safe and friendly place that feels like home.
