About Us


Our Approach

We call it The Tupelo Spirit. It's instilled in each one of us when we're born, or it seeps into you if you move here. We're neighbor helping neighbor in times of crisis. We all celebrate our victories and mourn our losses. We agree to disagree in a reasonable fashion - The Tupelo Way.

Come, join us. Be a part of the Tupelo Spirit.

Our Story

Incorporated as a city in 1870 and named after the native Tupelo gum tree, Tupelo’s modern history can be traced to the convergence of the Mobile & Ohio and the Kansas City, Memphis & Birmingham railroads in 1887. As a rail distribution and manufacturing center, Tupelo achieved several firsts, including the first city in the nation to provide its citizens with dependable, inexpensive electric power through the Tennessee Valley Authority.
