Coahoma County Overview

Coahoma County, created in 1836 is in the Mississippi Delta region of Mississippi. The county seat and largest community is Clarksdale. The population was 26,151 as of the 2010 census. In the early days of the county, before the construction of railways or extensive roadways inland, the Mississippi River was the primary transportation route, and the first three county seats were each located on the river. In 1836, Port Royal was designated as the first county seat. In 1841, high waters on the Mississippi River flooded Port Royal, and in 1842 the county seat was moved to the town of Delta. High waters on the Mississippi also flooded Delta, and in 1850 the county seat was moved to Friars Point, which had a population of about 1,000 in 1920, and received its name in honor of Robert Friar, an early settler. As nearby Clarksdale grew in population and influence, it challenged Friars Point’s hold on the county government, and in 1892, Coahoma County was divided into two jurisdictions, one going to Friars Point and the other to Clarksdale. In 1930, the county seat was given exclusively to Clarksdale, which had a population of 7,500 in 1920. Clarksdale is now the largest and most important city in the county, and was named for John Clark, a brother-in-law of Governor James L. Alcorn, whose home, Eagle’s Nest, was in this county. The county’s total area is 552 square miles of land, plus 31 square miles of water. Adjacent counties are: Phillips county, Arkansas to the west, Bolivar County, MS to the southwest, Tallahatchie County, MS to the southeast, Sunflower County, MS to the south, Quitman County, MS to the east and Tunica County, MS to the north. The largest zip code in the county is 38614, and it is one of 11 total zips. Famous singer, Conway Twitty was born in Friars Point, Mississippi.
