About Okolona

Okolona means good people and a good place to live, a well-kept secret. In Okolona, the cost of living is below nearby areas, yet we have much to offer. There are both public and private recreational facilities, and we are only minutes from the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway to the east. We are only twenty minutes from Tupelo, with a new four-lane highway connecting. We are only an hour's drive from three major universities, and less than an hour to a community college. Churches of almost every denomination are found in Okolona. We have emergency services. Okolona is full of beautiful old homes waiting for someone to work on them and love them. We also have beautiful building sites with large, old trees. We have two industrial parks, with land available in each.

For more historical information on Okolona, HISTORY OF OKOLONA books may be ordered from the Chamber office for $20. There are also booklets with stories of Okolona by some of the residents that can be purchased for $5.
