One of the most iconic neighborhoods in the Jackson metro area, the historic and eclectic haven of Greater Belhaven holds a special place in the hearts of many. People are drawn to Belhaven for its fascinating architecture, the strong educational and cultural institutions, the towering old trees, and most of all, the strong sense of community that is inclusive and active.
Once the neighborhood of literary luminary Eudora Welty, her house is now a museum near Belhaven University, where one can glance up and look to the window where she once sat to write some of her most famous works. Other charming features of our vibrant community include many local restaurants, a neighborhood grocery, a robust wine shop, award-winning medical facilities, parks for children and pets, as well as garden-edged streets where you will find neighbors visiting while out for a stroll.
The boundaries of Greater Belhaven extend from High Street to Woodrow Wilson and from Congress Street to I-55. The central location of Greater Belhaven provides easy access to many exciting areas of the city just minutes away such as Fondren, Midtown, downtown, and LeFleur’s East.
