Minter City is an unincorporated community in northern Leflore County, Mississippi in the Mississippi Delta on the Leflore County/Tallahatchie County county line. Minter City is located on the Tallahatchie River approximately 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Philipp, 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Glendora and 13 miles (21 km) east of Ruleville. The former downtown area of Minter City is located on the Tallahatchie River, at the intersection of River Road and Old Hwy 8.

Minter City is part of the Greenwood, Mississippi micropolitan area

Mississippi Highway 8 intersects U.S. Highway 49E in the Minter City area.

Although Minter City is an unincorporated community, it has a post office (located along U.S. Highway 49E) with a ZIP code of 38944.[2]


Originally on land owned by James Minter, the town was named Walnut Place or Walnut Grove. Because there was another Mississippi town named Walnut Grove, the name was changed. Names were put into a hat and the name Minter was drawn.

The land that some[who?] may consider the old town or downtown Minter City is privately owned now by one family. A small part of the downtown still exists.
