Homochitto Ranger District

The Homochitto National Forest was named for the Homochitto River, a Native American name for the "Big Red River." The area of land around what is now the Homochitto National Forest was strongly influenced by France, England and Spain. The largest nearby city, Natchez, derived its name from the Native American tribe formerly located on the lower Mississippi River.
