Pearl River County Overview

Established in 1890, Pearl River County, Mississippi had a population of 55,834 as of the 2010 census. The county seat is Poplarville; however, Picayune is the largest community. Pearl River County is a dry county, and as such, the sale, transportation, and even private possession of beverage alcohol is prohibited by law, except within The City of Picayune (which has exempted itself). On September 2, 2005, the 1st Battalion, 134th Field Artillery (Ohio Army National Guard) arrived at the National Guard armory in Poplarville to assist the community and Pearl River County in recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Initial efforts were the security of banks, pharmacies and gas stations as well as initial responses to rural emergencies. The unit stayed for three weeks ultimately checking on many families and structures in the county. The county has a total area of 811 square miles of land, plus eight square miles of water. Two neighboring counties are in Louisiana, to the southwest and west lie, St. Tammany Parish and Washington Parish, respectively. Remaining borders join with Lamar county to the north, Forrest county to the northeast, Stone county to the east, Hancock county to the south, and Marion County to the northwest. The county is also home to portions of two nationally protected areas: The Bogue Chitto National Wildlife Refuge and the De Soto National Forest. Of the five zip codes assigned to the county, 39466 is the largest.
