Come Home to Hernando

T hank you for visiting the official website for Hernando, Mississippi.

As the county seat of one of the Top 40 fastest-growing counties in the nation, Hernando is a historic community alive and bustling with new and exciting developments.

In just four years’ time, this community of 10,000 has experienced a 32 percent rate of growth and is quickly becoming one of the more desirable locations in the Mid-South for families and businesses to call home.

Located just 12 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee, Hernando offers the convenience of being in the city without compromising the advantages of living in a small town.

From dining and shopping options to its scenic parks, charming square and small-town traditions, Hernando offers residents and visitors alike a truly one-of-a-kind experience that you can’t find just anywhere.

With excellent schools, beautiful neighborhoods and low taxes and crime, Hernando is an ideal location for raising a family, starting a business or even retiring. And with our world-famous Mississippi hospitality, it’s not a bad place to just drop by and visit, either.

But, don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself why more and more people are realizing that Hernando is THE PLACE TO BE!
