Christmas Parade

The Nettleton Christmas Parade, which was organized by Friends of Nettleton and the Nettleton Fire Department was held on Thursday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m. Fire Departments in attendance were Nettleton Fire Department, Shannon Fire Department, Union Fire Department, Cason Fire Department, Plantersville-South Lee Fire Department.
Monroe County Sheriff's Department as well as other law enforcement. Constable Phil Gann was also present.
We have several winners, antique cars and floats from around the area.
1st Place Float went to New Prospect MB Church
2nd Place Float went to Shiloh United Methodist Church
3rd Place Float went to Gilmore Early Learning Center, Inc.
And of course Santa made his appearance on the Nettleton Volunteer Department Float and tossed candy to everyone and wished them a Merry Christmas. Many children took advantage of the opportunity to have their pictures made with Santa prior to the parade which was a service provided by Friends of Nettleton.

We also would like to thank the judges who judged the floats in the parade. They were members of surrounding Civitan clubs. Also, special thanks to the Nettleton Masonic Lodge and Nettleton Lions Club for assisting with traffic control. They were Jerome Sheffield, Stephanie Rebman and Shirley Giddens.
We hope everyone enjoyed this year's Nettleton Christmas Parade, and we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  Welcome to the City of Nettleton website. We hope you find the site helpful in discovering much of what Nettleton has to offer. Nettleton is a friendly place in which to live and raise a family, to establish and grow a
 business or simply enjoy the "good life." Nettleton is located on four-lane U.S. Highway 45, which is your link to any destination in the United States.
  The City of Nettleton was incorporated soon after the Kansas, Memphis and Birmingham Railroad (later Frisco, then Burlington Northern and now Burlington Northern Santa Fe) began traveling through Lee and Monroe Counties. Several men decided to take advantage of the new railway and established the City of Nettleton in 1888.
  Early industry in Nettleton was the lumber business. Nettleton Hardwood
Company opened in 1890 and shipped wood to every state in the nation and large quantities to international markets. After the best timber was exhausted, Nettleton continued as a farming community and slowly but steadily transformed into a small city through the development of the railroad and the construction  of Mississippi Highway 6.
  Now more than 100 years after being founded, the adaptability and heritage of Nettleton continues. Local residents and businesses alike work together and take pride in their town. We have excellent police, fire and public works departments as well as our own municipal justice system. Our modern city hall building is less than five years old and is an excellent facility for Nettleton residents to use in conducting their city-related business.
  You are encouraged to explore our website and take advantage of all its features. And we certainly encourage you to consider Nettleton as the location of your new business or home.
