Welcome to the new official website of Wesson, Mississippi!
Welcome to the Town of Wesson, a municipality with a rich past and promising future. We pride ourselves on our quiet way of life, almost non-existent crime rate, wonderful family atmosphere, and community involvement. Established in 1864, Wesson was once the center for cotton fabric production in the South, being the largest growing town between Jackson and New Orleans. Wesson’s center is in education, boasting Wesson Attendance Center as the area’s most sought after K-12 public school, along with Copiah-Lincoln Community College.
So welcome to what many people have termed a modern day Mayberry, and considering what is going on in the world around us, we take that statement as a complement.
Alton Shaw, Mayor
