A Rich History for Beat 5

In 1983, following a court action, an engineer sat down to draw out the boundaries of what would become Jones County Beat 5.

As the lines were carefully drawn, a full history of a part of this storied Mississippi county found a common element. From musical celebrities to civil rights activists, the birth of industry giants and the founding of a city, the stories captured within these lines each played a unique role in creating the home we cherish so much.

Even still, leaders, local heroes and those who may one day change the world, continue to spring forth from a place defined simply as “Beat 5.”
