Mississippi City Directories

Polk's* city directories offer four different access points to business and residential listings. Each volume contains a buyer's guide with business classifieds, an alphabetical list of names with telephone number, address, occupation and marital status,a directory of householders with a numerical street and avenue guide, and a numerical (reverse) telephone directory. Also included are general descriptions and statistical profiles of the area.

*The collection of city directories held by McCain Library consists primarily of those published by R.L. Polk.
