What Bert Has To Say About Hattiesburg Metro Area


Hattiesburg, the state’s second largest city, is definitely Old South, with well-preserved historic homes and a typical Southern town core with shaded streets. The economy is tied to the forest-products industry, and although it has diversified somewhat from that base with a variety of manufacturing activities, employment is still a concern. The University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey College lend some college-town flavor. The city is also positioning itself as a good retirement destination.
