Mississippi - Named after the mighty river that forms its western border, Mississippi has the distinction of being the birthplace of both Elvis Presley and Delta Blues music. Mississippi is often called the “Magnolia State,” after the tree that bears the state flower, or the “Bayou State” for its marshes and slow-moving streams. Beyond blues music, Mississippi is recognized for its literary ties to legendary authors such as William Faulkner, Eudora Welty and Tennessee Williams. Along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, around Biloxi and Gulfport, self storage facilities are filled to overflowing with kayaks, canoes and bayou boats for exploring the rivers and marshes, plus golf clubs and carts to use on the area’s 20 courses. Mini storage units in Greenville are a great fit for backpacks, ropes and canteens used to hike through the Greenville Cypress Preserve or along The Great Wall of Mississippi – a levee system more extensive than the Great Wall of China. As the city where Elvis was born, Tupelo attracts collectors who fill mini storage facilities with rock and roll collectibles. Hundreds of self storage facilities are located in communities throughout Mississippi.
