Batesville is a city in Panola County, Mississippi, United States. The population was 7,463 at the 2010 census.
Batesville is one of two county seats which the legislature established for Panola County, related to a longstanding rivalry between towns on either side of the Tallahatchie River; the other is Sardis, located north of the river.
Batesville was founded in the 1850s following the construction of the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad.
