Located in the Pine Belt in the Southeastern portion of Mississippi, Leakesville was established circa 1826 as the new county seat of Greene County by the legislature. The town was named in honor of Walter Leake the first territorial governor of Mississippi.
In 1903 the first railroad connection was established, when the Vinegar Bend Lumber Company extended their line to Leakesville, which was subsequently, connected to a line running to Pascagoula. The railroad caused an expansion of the already burgeoning timber industry causing the population to grow, and calls for incorporation.
Since incorporation, the city has grown from 123 residents to approximately 1,050. The town is poised for future growth due to the presence of a new four-lane highway and expanding health care and education opportunities, as well as outdoor recreational activities.
Along the MS Gulf Coast, countless cultural and entertainment amenities are available year round! The various art, music, and food festivals are not to be missed! Restaurants galore and white sand beaches run from one end of the coast to the other. We even have the Biloxi Shuckers baseball team to cheer at the MGM ballpark. Deep sea fishing, kayaking, tennis, running, and golf are among the local favorite sports. Our communities just north of the Coast offer an even more laid-back atmosphere where hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, waterskiing, and gardening are the norm. High School baseball, football, and soccer are popular highlights! These communities are a short drive to the coast, New Orleans, and Mobile.
