Terry

Why you'd want to live in Terry

The town of Terry is located on Interstate 55 in Hinds County, Mississippi, about 15 miles southwest of the capitol city of Jackson. It is in Hinds County Supervisor’s District Five. Terry is the birthplace of influential blues musician Tommy Johnson, who had claimed to have sold his soul to the devil at a secluded Mississippi crossroads in exchange for fame and fortune. This legend was later popularized by its attribution to bluesman Robert Johnson. Terry was the adopted home of Luster Willis, a folk-art painter whose works were in such demand for collectors of “outsider art” that he drew copies by tracing the images from plexiglass. There are two parks in Terry. The Village Square is located on Cunningham Avenue, and it has such amenities as playground equipment for children, park benches for visiting, tennis counts, and a walking track for exercise. The Community Center is also located at the Village Square. The Village Square was given its name as part of a high-school “Name the Park” contest won by Jim Eley. Jim Eley is a local architect who grew up in Terry. The County Park is located on Morgan Drive, but is within the corporate limits of the town. The County Park was spear-headed by Terry’s own Hinds County Supervisor George Smith. It has such amenities as a lighted baseball diamond, tennis courts, and a concession stand with restroom facilities. via Town of Terry
