Walthall County Sheriff's Office
Through the years, Walthall County and the county seat Tylertown have typified the relationship of a rural small-town and county atmosphere. Our greatest asset is our people. The residents of Walthall County show strength of character and exemplify superior work ethics in everything they do. Perhaps some of this is due to the history of the county which earned us the title of "The Cream Pitcher of Mississippi.” Some say that makes our people "the cream of the crop". We couldn't agree more.
Located in southwest Mississippi, Walthall County is home to 15,000+ residents who contribute to the area's rich agricultural history, from cotton fanning, dairy, and poultry production to the abundant pine harvesting. Don't let the population numbers fool you though. Over 800,000 people live within 60 miles of Tylertown which gives us the ability to provide a quality workforce for the needs of almost any size company.
We can't prove that southern hospitality was invented in Tylertown, but we suspect it was. Our folks are some of the nicest that you will find anywhere. Tylertown is best known for the Tylertown’s Dairy Festival.
Tylertown offers an appealing climate for the family as well as business. Ideally located between Jackson, MS and New Orleans, LA, the city, and county offer the pleasant lifestyle of a progressive small town but with easy access to many parts of the south. Four-lane HWY 98 makes traveling to Hattiesburg, MS and accessing 1-59 a pleasant and speedy route. 1-55 and McComb, MS is less than 20 minutes from Tylertown via four-lane Hwy 98.
Our southern hospitality is genuine and we welcome you to call us home - for yourself or your business.
