According to a published history of Tate County , the
City of Senatobia was founded on two sections of land
purchased in 1834 from the Chickasaw nation for $1.25
per acre. The name “Senatobia” was derived
from the Indian word ” Senatohoba ,” which
means “white Sycamore” and is a symbol of
” rest for the weary.” Senatobia received
its charter as a municipality in 1860.
With many residential areas under construction, Senatobia
continues to grow at a sustainable pace. It is a great
place to own a home, raise a family, and be a part of
a caring community. Come and see for yourself.
