Fulton, the seat of justice of Itawamba County, is located about the center of the county north and south, and a little west of the center east and west, and is the only town in the county, though there are stores at different points in all directions.
The population was two hundred and seventy-nine in 1890. It has no railway facilities, but is in the center of a substantial country trade, and has good educational and religious institutions.
