Fannin is an unincorporated community located in northwest Rankin County, Mississippi, United States, near the cities of Jackson, Flowood, Brandon, and Ridgeland, loosely bordered by the Pearl River and Pelahatchie Creek. Originally occupied by Native Americans, the eventual settlement became a thriving agricultural-based town post Civil War, through the first half of the twentieth century. The decline of the railroads, the impoundment of the Pearl River, and the general migration of settlers toward nearby cities led to Fannin's eventual dis-incorporation and transition into a mostly rural residential community.
