Minter City is an unincorporated community in Leflore County, Mississippi, in the Mississippi Delta region. The former downtown area of Minter City is located on the Tallahatchie River, at the intersection of River Road and Old Hwy 8. State Hwy 8 intersects U.S. 49 in the Minter City area. 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 may consider the old town or downtown Minter City is privately owned now by one family. A small part of the downtown still exists.
