Lee County Overview

Lee is a county in Mississippi, that was created in 1866 and named for confederate general, Robert E. Lee. As of the 2010 census, the population was 82,910. The largest community is also the county seat, Tupelo. It was carved from Itawamba and Pontotoc; therefore, the record and list of pioneers mentioned in those counties embrace a great number who were residents of what is now Lee County. The county has a total area of 450 square miles of land, plus three-square miles of water. Adjacent counties are: Itawamba to the east, Monroe to the southeast, Chickasaw to the southwest, Pontotoc to the west and Union to the northwest. The county is home to two nationally protected areas: Tupelo National Battlefield, and Brice’s Cross Roads National Battlefield Site. A portion of the Natchez Trace Parkway is also within the county lines and is nationally protected. Of the 14 zip codes assigned to the county, 38801 has the greatest population.
