Welcome to the Forest Area Chamber of Commerce. Located in Scott County in the heart of central Mississippi, Forest is one of the region’s most progressive small towns. The Chamber of Commerce takes an active role in the continuing effort of ensuring that the Forest/Scott County area remains a growing community with economic stability, thriving business-industry, good schools, and affordable housing. For over a century, our Chamber has worked with business and community leaders to improve the quality of life for everyone, and our goal is to continue to move our community forward in the 21st Century. Forest is known throughout the state for its small town charm, beauty, hospitality, and caring people. Whether you are visiting, new to the area, or an “old timer,” we welcome you!

Forest, the county seat of Scott County, was chartered in November 1865 by the Mississippi State Legislature. Its name was derived from the dense pine forest, which surrounded the site. Located in central Mississippi at the intersection of I-20 and Highway 35, Forest is home to such corporations as Lady Forest Farms, Raytheon Company Systems, Inc., Unipres Southeast USA, Inc., and Tyson Foods; yet, it retains the charm and friendliness of the South.

This is a town where family values are cherished, education is priority, and the quality of life is exceptional. Gaddis Park, the Scott County Livestock Coliseum, Bo Clark baseball field, and nearby state parks provide a variety of recreational opportunities. Residents also enjoy plays, musicals, and art shows sponsored by Forest Community Arts. We invite you to join the good folks in Forest. It’s a great place to live!
