As mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Town
of Prentiss. Located in the heart of south-central Mississippi along the El
Camino Corridor, we are within easy driving distance to the state capitol in
Jackson, the Mississippi River at Natchez and Vicksburg, the beaches of the
Mississippi Gulf Coast and New Orleans.
Prentiss has many unique diversions to offer anyone. Whether your interests
range from enjoying fishing at Jeff Davis Lake, an Urban Tree Walk featuring
some of our ancestral homes or playing a few holes of golf at Prentiss Country
Club, you will find a gem nestled among small town atmosphere and hospitality.
One of our top attractions for outdoor enthusiasts is the Longleaf Trace, a
41-mile biking and hiking corridor between Prentiss and Hattiesburg. One of the
longest rail-trails in the United States, the Trace is building a reputation
among both serious and casual bikers.
If you can visit, I hope you will take the time to meet some of our residents,
as you will find their friendliness is matched only by their devotion to their
Mayor Charley Dumas
