Community Overview

Located in the area known as the Mississippi Delta, Greenwood is a city perched on the Yazoo River. It's known as one of the birthplaces of the blues, and music history is a proud part of the city. Rich in Southern hospitality and charm, it's a spot good for all. The historic downtown has been revitalized over recent years, and now features boutiques and restaurants. It's also the home of the Viking Range Company, a high-end appliance manufacturer that offers a cooking school, hotel, and elite spa in the downtown district. Greenwood's tourism office has a self-guided historic walking tour of downtown which offers knowledge and trivia about the historic buildings there.

Historic, beautiful, and bursting with culture, Greenwood is a nice place to live. The city's vibe and great events make it one of the most interesting spots in the state. In the spring the Yazoo River plays host to the Que on the Yazoo, a BBQ cooking competition with live music and activities - all with free admission. Later in the summer, the skies are alight with fireworks at the Stars & Stripes Festivals, and then the winter is marked with the Christmas Parade.
