Meridian is located in the eastern part of the state of Mississippi and a city and seat of Lauderdale County. It sits in the eastern part of the city of Jackson. The sire was chosen to become the junction of the Vicksburg and Montgomery and the Mobile and Ohio railway lines in 1854 that runs about a few miles from the border of Alabama. The first settlers thought that “meridian” means the “junction,” or possibly “zenith.” The Confederate military camp was located in the area during the American Civil War and it then served as the state capital for a month in 1863. The city’s present economic industry includes the manufacture including paper products, automotive parts, audio equipment, among others. The city is home to a number of establishments that include the Meridian Community College, and a branch of the Mississippi State University.
