The Land upon which present-day Batesville is situated formerly belonged to a Chickasaw Indian called Ish-Sho-Nu-Nah. Batesville was named after Mr. Jim Bates, a prominent Methodist minister in the county. The town of Batesville received its charter in 1866. Batesville has always been the center of prime agricultural lands, thriving on the proceeds of farming and livestock raising. Since the beginning, Batesville has been home to industrial sites. The first such interest was developed during the early years of the Civil War when a gun factory was established in Batesville with a single employee. The town is rich in tradition and history of the Civil War. Check out the top ten Airbnb vacation rentals in Batesville, Mississippi below!

The Little Portion is a peaceful country home with one of the most stunning views you can find. It is accessed by a short, private gravel road that leads off the highway, placing it away from the noise and city rush from the urban jungle; you will find yourself surrounded by the beauty of unspoilt nature. The home is about a 10-minute drive from Jackson Avenue or Ole Miss Campus. It is called The Little Portion because the house is built on a little portion of the original 5,000 acres of land purchased by owner’s great-grandfather in 1892. There is a queen size sofa bed if needed. WiFi is available.
