The Mississippi towns of Ackerman, French Camp, and Weir, and their surrounding areas share a cohesive sense of community. At the heart of the spirit of community is The Choctaw County Partnership.

The county is full of natural resources and beauty, including Choctaw Lake and the Natchez Trace Parkway. And residents make the most of these natural resources through work and recreation.

This area of the state has a rich history in the timber, agriculture, coal, and manufacturing industries. We are home to a lignite power plant and two natural gas plants, which supply power to multiple utilities in and outside of our state. In recent years, the county welcomed two new industrial tenants, creating more jobs. We remain committed to growing our local industries and welcoming new businesses into the region. 

Choctaw County is rated first in the state of Mississippi for providing the best value in public education. The Partnership area is just a short drive away from Mississippi State University, one of the nation’s leading research universities, and is located in proximity to several other institutions of higher learning.

This county not only leads the state in education but also in low property taxes. These two factors, along with a top ten low crime rating in the state, make Choctaw County one of the best places to live in Mississippi.
