<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Holmes, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Tchula.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Tchula - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
