Hattiesburg Apartments for Rent
When pioneer William H. Hardy founded a town in Mississippi, he named it for his wife, Hattie. That was in 1882, and today Hattiesburg is a popular city, home to the University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey University. Hattiesburg is called the “Hub City” because of its history as the “hub” of the lumber and railroad industries.
Hattiesburg is about 75 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico, just northwest of De Soto National Forest. Apartments in Hattiesburg provide endless outdoor activities, from trips to the coast to hiking and camping in the nearby national forest. The Hattiesburg Zoo at Kamper Park has a splash pad, a playground, a carousel, and 60 animal species.
USM hosts many events, from sports to theater. Also known as “Southern Miss,” the university is a highly-respected research university that was established in 1910. Rent in Hattiesburg and soon you’ll be cheering on the Golden Eagles football team at MM Roberts Stadium, and the basketball team at Reed Green Coliseum.
