Greetings from Forest Mississippi——–the city leading the way! Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

On behalf of all our citizens, let me welcome you to our community, located in central Mississippi on the Interstate 20 corridor. Nestled amid the Bienville National Forest with beautiful surroundings, Forest is a small city filled with friendly, warm people who are always concerned about small town atmosphere in the midst of progressive business and industrial development.

We are proud of our nationally recognized public school system, our favorable business climate, our community arts organization, our great churches of all denominations, our city recreational facilities and our outstanding police and fire departments working together to keep our neighborhoods safe and attractive for all our citizens.

Forest is a city of diverse population living together in harmony. We are extremely proud of our city and delighted that you have an interest in us. Please feel free to visit City Hall at any time. We look forward to meeting you.

Nancy N. Chambers
Mayor, City of Forest
