Aberdeen's picturesque tree-lined streets and busy shopping district complement the city's proximity to the scenic Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, which provides a water route to the world, connecting the inland waters of the Tennessee River with the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, Aberdeen was founded because of her location on the Tombigbee River and her proximity to rich prairie land ideal for cotton farming. 
As a historic port city, Aberdeen is accustomed to hosting and accommodating travelers. Residents and visitors alike share access to the area's recreational treasures, which range from community wide events such as festivals and parades to the individual and group activities of shopping, hunting, fishing, hiking and golfing. The city also nurtures local cultural riches, such as theater performances, celebrations and tours, and one of the most complete and varied libraries in Mississippi.

Aberdeen is a great place...great for business, great for living...and great for retiring. Approximately equidistant from Memphis and Birmingham, Aberdeen is located on the west bank of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, which connects the Port of Mobile, Alabama to the remainder of the United States. Complete shipping facilities are available to business and industry at the Port of Aberdeen.

Aberdeen is the county seat of Monroe County. It is also the seat of Monroe County Circuit Court, Monroe County Chancery Court, U.S. Distric Court for the Northern District of Mississippi, and U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Mississippi.

Aberdeen is home to industry - Westlake Chemical, Nanocor, Tenn-Tom Pallet, Comer Packing, Kimera and Monroe Kut, plus Tronox Chemical in nearby Hamilton.
