City of Meridian, MS

Meridian, a.k.a. "The Strategic Center of the South," is home to economic clusters such as the military, which includes Naval Air Station Meridian and Key Field, manufacturing and health care. The city is also the first in Mississippi with a Designated Entertainment District, a natural continuation of its rich music heritage, which includes the legacy of native son Jimmie Rodgers, "The Father of Country Music." Other popular attractions include nine historic districts, MSU's Riley Theater, Meridian Little Theater and the Dentzel Carousel, which dates from 1896.
