Named for pioneer settler Wiggins Hatten,
Wiggins was proclaimed an incorporated
municipality by Mississippi governor J. K.
Vardaman on March 26, 1904. From 1902 to
1929 the main industry in Wiggins was a
sawmill erected by the Finkbine family of
Iowa. To make use of cut-over timber land,
the Finkbines established the American
Pickle and Canning Company. As a result.
Wiggins was known as the "Pickle Capital
of the World." Much of the town burned
January 21, 1910. Thereafter all downtown
buildings and streets were built of brick.
