Description
Capt. William H. Hardy, a pioneer lumberman and engineer, founded Hattiesburg in 1882, naming the town after his wife. Architecturally well preserved, Hattiesburg has a historic, art-centric downtown and is also home to the University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey University.
Hiking, biking and inline skating can be enjoyed along the Longleaf Trace Trail, accessible via Fourth Street near the USM campus. The 41-mile trail constructed along a former railroad right-of-way stretches from Hattiesburg to Prentiss. A 26-mile path paralleling the main paved trail between the towns of Carson and Epley is used by horseback riders.
