About the City of Aberdeen Port
The City of Aberdeen Port is on the west bank of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway in Monroe County. In Aberdeen’s early history, the port played a major economic role. Aberdeen’s status as a thriving cotton port on the Tombigbee River has evolved into the city's current standing as “the chemical manufacturing capital of Northeast Mississippi.”
Aberdeen retains many historic structures from its days as one of the busiest Mississippi ports of the 1800s. Over 200 buildings here are on the National Register of Historic Places. Every spring, Aberdeen hosts pilgrimages to its historic antebellum homes. The most prominent of these antebellum homes is the Magnolias, built in 1850.
Aberdeen is the county seat of Monroe County and home to the Monroe County Circuit Court, Monroe County Chancery Court, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi, and U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Mississippi.
