Belzoni's Quality of Life


Humphreys County is serious about providing the best quality of life for its citizens.  Ideally situated between in the Heart of the Delta, it is rural living at its best.  

The natural beauty of the area and wide variety of available activities provide an exemplary setting to raise a family. Humphreys County has a wide array of hunting, fishing and boating opportunities.

The high caliber of the school system, upgrades and expanded services at the hospital, and an emphasis on civic activities, coupled with a strong commitment to seeking new business and supporting existing industry, exemplify our strong pro-business philosophy.

Our winters are mild, our summers warm, and, our citizens are genuinely friendly and welcoming.  

With its low cost of living (well below the national average), Belzoni is attractive for the young and old alike.  

Low state and property taxes provide additional incentives for working families.
