About Meridian, MS
Meridian is a balanced city, equal parts old and new, small-town charm and big-city appeal. A community that got its start in the mid-1800s as a tiny village, Meridian has a deeply entrenched sense of heritage and close ties to its natural surroundings. Significant portions of the city are state historical sites, containing architectural examples from several eras. The town's gentle hills and forested northern and southern stretch, in which streams and lakes are common, generate Meridian's uniquely relaxed character.
