Lena Profile


Overview

Lena is a tiny town located in the state of Mississippi. With a population of 143 people and just one neighborhood, Lena is the 244th largest community in Mississippi.

Setting & Lifestyle

Lena’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
