Pearl, Mississippi, is one of the state’s newer cities, but this doesn’t mean that its history is less impressive. In fact, it is in the beauty of its birth that makes it a source of pride for many of the residents, and Watkins Construction and Roofing has been servicing this area for many years as a trusted local roofer.
After the American Civil War, the bottomlands of the Pearl River were developed for agriculture. The area’s population was sparse until the mid-1900s when the development of Jackson’s state capital in Hinds County to the west spilled over into this county. New residents and industry soon settled here. Thereafter, the area’s growth came from the urban expansion of the capital, control of flood threats from the Pearl River, and improved transportation due to accessible interstates and Jackson-Evers International Airport.
On September 16, 1968, a community meeting was held to discuss Pearl’s incorporation, with all but six of the 657 attending residents favoring incorporation. A “Boundary Committee” proposed several different possible boundaries a little more than a month later. The following January, the community voted for an 11 square miles (28 square kilometers) boundary that included the Pearl River to Airport Road, excluding East Jackson and all areas south of Interstate 20 except Cunningham Heights and Grandview Heights. A majority at that meeting also agreed on naming the city “Pearl,” in preference to the also-proposed “Riverview” and “Brightsville.”
The first Mayor, Harris Harvey, was elected, and council members Jimmy Joe Thompson, W.D. McAlpin, James Netherland, Ophelia Byrd, Mack C. Atwood, W.L. Maddox, and Bobby Joe Davis. With the Mississippi Supreme Court ruling of June 5, 1973, the incorporation could proceed. A week later, the state legislature issued a charter. On June 29, 1973, Governor William Winter presided over the first annual Pearl Day Celebration, with the city’s new officials’ swearing-in, who met for the first time on July 3, 1973.
The Pearl Municipal Separate School District was created on May 18, 1976, by an Ordinance of the City of Pearl Mayor and Board of Aldermen. The first franchise by the City of Pearl for cable television was granted on July 6, 1976. The Pearl Chamber of Commerce was formed on August 24, 1978.

Whether you choose to relax at a movie or Mississippi Braves Game, stroll through the Outlets of Mississippi or Bass Pro Shop, eat at restaurants, or unwind at one of our many hotels, there’s a lot to do.
Pearl is also situated adjacent to the Jackson-Evers International Airport. The airport is the state’s largest and only international airport, and it has 96 commercial flights daily. Jackson-Evers Airport provides convenient passenger travel and cargo shipment worldwide. The development of the Jackson-Evers airport in Rankin County has catalyzed business growth.
