EXPLORE
Pearl River County

Pearl River County is a great source of both history and family-friendly travel. Located in the pine belt region, Pearl River County is 816 square miles of rolling hills, deep ridges, and valleys. Pearl River County was founded in 1890 and is home to Wolf River, Pearl River, and East and West Hobolichitto. Take your family to the city of Poplarville and pick farm-fresh blueberries and learn how they are grown. Also, don't forget to check out the Shaw House hidden away in Poplarville; the history and legends surrounding it can be spooky!

You can also bring your family to the Crosby Arboretum and learn how to preserve and protect the environment. There are plenty of learning opportunities because the Arboretum maintains roughly 700 acres of natural areas for scientific study.

Fun Fact: Poplarville is the blueberry capital of Mississippi!
