An excellent place to begin your stay in the City Beautiful is the Laurel Welcome Center!

Located in the old First National Bank on Central Avenue, you can find information on sights, activities, lodging and restaurants in Laurel and Jones County.

You’ll receive personalized help from a representative who stands ready to answer your questions. You may also browse the racks of our complimentary brochures from area businesses and attractions or pick up a walking tour of historic downtown Laurel. You can also pick up tickets to events or Laurel Main Street goods.

Invented by Laurelite John Lindsey, the Lindsey Wagon revolutionized the international lumber industry, and this original, restored wagon is now displayed at the Welcome Center
