    Batesville, MS is a small town with lots of character. Just 25 miles from Old Miss University and the home of the South Panola Tigers, national credited high school football team. Great place to raise children and enjoy some good old fashion fun.

    There are more people moving out of Batesville then there are coming in. To get a better education in this town, you have to attend a private school. The public school education is very poor, and focuses more on sports. Batesville was once a huge town, but is slowly decreasing. If you have grown up here though you would enjoy it more for the country side.

    I love my home. I would not want to live anywhere else. It is small, but not too small. There are places to eat and stay and things nearby to pass the time.
