Pearl Municipal Court

The growth of Pearl, Mississippi came when development in the state capital of Jackson spilled over, and the flood threats of the Pearl River were successfully controlled. For most of the 20th century, Pearl was primarily a white-only community—in 1970, the city had 9,613 white residents and 10 black residents. By the 1990’s, the city of Pearl had become more racially integrated, with blacks making up nearly a quarter of the total population.

In 1968, the “Boundary Committee presented suggested boundaries for Pearl, and by 1969 it was voted to approve the boundaries which included the area from the Pearl River to the Airport Road (excluding East Jackson) and Grandview Heights and Cunningham Heights south of Interstate 20. While the original incorporated city included about 11 square miles, over the years the boundaries have expanded to now include nearly 24 square miles. At the meeting which established the boundaries of Pearl, the name was also up for selection, with Riverview and Brightsville also considered. Today, Pearl, Mississippi is the largest city in Rankin County, with an estimated population of more than 26,000.

In 1987 George Kersh, a Pearl High School track star, shattered the national high school record in the 800-meter run. In 2005 an affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, the Mississippi Braves were welcomed to their new home in Pearl to a ball park situated on 30 acres and costing $28 million. In 2013, the 325,000 square ft. Outlets of Mississippi opened on Bass Pro Drive in the city of Pearl.

Today, Pearl is a thriving city, with the state capital of Jackson less than ten minutes away. This means while you can enjoy the small-town feel of Pearl, you are only a few miles from seeing the Mississippi Museum of Natural History, the Mississippi Children’s Museum, the Eudora Welty House and Garden, the Civil Rights Museum, the Mississippi Museum of Art, the Russell C. Davis Planetarium, the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Lucky Town Brewing Company—to name just a few.
