With advances in technology, people are now able to share their story with people from all over the world. Most people who know of Tupelo associate our town with its most famous son, Elvis Presley. We're very proud of the legacy and accomplishments of Elvis, but our story doesn't stop there. Tupelo has continued to progress and inspire and that spirit is what we want people to know about. It’s a community spirit that can’t be experienced anywhere else.
Our story lies within our attitude to be a city that has a mindset focused on progressing but to also never lose our roots. That balance is what makes Tupelo a town where anything is possible. The inspiration is here, it’s your job to discover it. We’re a town that fostered and inspired the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, started an entire economy around an Irish Bull, and continues to delight with our sweet Southern charm.
From here we want people to begin exploring our story, because within our story are countless other stories. We have a community of storytellers who have been inspired by the unique offerings of Tupelo. It’s a town where anything is possible if you set your mind to achieving your dreams. It’s a town where we boast our strong sense of community and willingness to support a neighbor in times of need. Our town is one that we want to share with the world.
During the next few months we’ll share some of our favorite Tupelo stories and images of what we feel makes our town so special. But, of course, these things are just a glimpse into the rich culture that resides in our little Southern city. We invite you to come experience these with us. Until then, you can keep up with Tupelo by following us on our social media channels: Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. We’ll share our posts using #MyTupelo and ask you to do the same. Whether you’re visiting or a local, please join us and show the world what #MyTupelo is to you.
