Welcome to Saltillo!

– Where “Away From It All” Is Closer Than You Think!

Saltillo is a classic “hometown” community, located just minutes North of the bustling city of Tupelo. We’ve been a happy place to live since 1870, when we were incorporated and named after the city of Saltillo down in Old Mexico.

We’ve grown to have a population of just about 5,000 folks. Most of our citizens work locally, but a great many find their occupations in Tupelo and just make the (very) short commute every day. Saltillo has taken advantage of it’s proximity to it’s larger neighbor – with a quiet, easy lifestyle and attractive housing costs it’s becoming a haven for families that appreciate a more tranquil and traditional lifestyle after a busy day at work.

Saltillo is a great place to raise a family! We’re very proud of our school system, which serves not only Saltillo but a large portion of Lee County as well. Visit to take a tour. We know our children are safe in school, and are being well prepared for college and a productive adult life.

Our City leadership is organized by a Mayor & Alderman system of governance. Mayor Rex Smith is a life-long resident of Saltillo, and was elected to serve us in 2013. Our elected Aldermen meet twice monthly at City Hall, and the meetings are open to the public.
