Rankin County

Building a Legacy of Success in Rankin County

Rankin County is one of the fastest growing counties in the Southeastern United States. Centrally located, we are at the crossroads of two major interstate highways (N/S bound I-55 and E/W bound I-20) and U. S. Highway 49 leading to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We are also at the intersection of two main rail lines (N/S bound Canadian National and E/W bound Kansas City Southern) and have immediate access to the state’s largest international airport, the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport.

Our location and transportation system, coupled with one of the state’s highest family incomes, a well-trained workforce, excellent award-winning schools, low tax and crime rates, and a wonderful quality of life for the entire family, makes Rankin County an ideal choice. Just one visit and it is easy to see why USA Today ranked Rankin County one of the “10 Best Places to Live” in the United States
