Located 15 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee on the rich, dark soil of the Mississippi Delta, the rural farming town of Walls offers rental apartments in a town of vast, open spaces just minutes from the Mississippi River.
An agricultural community, this small Mississippi town grows cotton, soybeans, rice, and corn. Although it is tiny, it is experiencing steady growth due to its ideal location. Downtown Memphis is minutes away, and the casinos of Tunica, Mississippi are just 12 miles to the south. Each hotspot is easily reached by Highway 61.
Originally called Alpika, the name was changed in 1906 for Civil War veteran Captain June Walls. Located in DeSoto County, the trail of Hernando DeSoto leads to Walls. With several nearby lakes and Holly Springs National Forest, boating, fishing, hiking, and camping are all convenient to Walls.
Walls, Mississipi is an ideal town for those looking for a relatively new, rural community still very close to metro areas and major attractions.
