Relations and Tourism
To promote and increase awareness of the programs, activities, and operations of the City through newsletters, publications and brochures and to plan events and provide tours for visitors and citizens of the Wesson House and City Hall Museum.
The City produces a bi-annual newsletter in April and October that is mailed to every household and business in Olive Branch and the surrounding area. It is a non-advertising publication used to communicate with the citizens of the Olive Branch community. It includes a message from the Mayor, upcoming events, a phone listing, and articles of local interest.
Hall of Fame Nominations
Nomination forms for the general public to nominate individuals for the Hall of Fame are provided each year in the Spring Newsletter. The Olive Branch Hall of Fame is established to honor and perpetuate the memory of those special men and women whose contribution to this community, from the time the first settlers arrived in 1836 until the present day has had a meaningful impact on the development of Olive Branch.

Veteran’s Monument & Honor Book of Veterans
On the front lawn of City Hall, there is a circular area know as Veteran’s Plaza. Towering over the Plaza under our nation’s flag is the Veteran’s Monument which honors anyone who has ever served in the armed forces of this country. The Veteran’s Monument stands twenty feet tall and is capped by a magnificent golden American Eagle in flight.
The Veteran’s Monument is complemented by our Honor Book of Veterans located inside the lobby of City Hall next to our Museum. This book features an 8 ½” x 11” photograph of our veteran’s along with a narrative of his/her military experience. This Honor Book of Veterans can be viewed anytime during City Hall’s open hours of 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
