Welcome to Philadelphia, Mississippi

Philadelphia is incorporated as a municipality; it was given its current name in 1903, two years before the railroad brought new opportunities and prosperity to the town. The history of the town and its influences- social, political and economic- can be seen in the many points of interest within and beyond the city limits. These range from the large ceremonial Indian mound and cave at Nanih Waiya, built about 1700 years ago and sacred to the Choctaw; to the still thriving Williams Brothers Store, a true old-fashioned general store founded in 1907 and featured in National Geographic in 1939 as a source of anything from “needles to horse collars”, and still offering everything from bridles, butter and boots to flour, feed and fashion.

Soccer registration is taking place at City Hall until August 20,2016. The age limits are 4-14 and registration is $70.00. Call 601-656-3612 for more information.

The City's patrol and DUI officers are now wearing body cameras which record both audio and video.
