Senatobia is a city in and the county seat of Tate County, Mississippi, and is the 15th largest municipality in the Memphis Metropolitan Area. The population was 8,165 at the 2010 census.

Senatobia is the home of Northwest Mississippi Community College, a state community college that provides two year academic and technical degree programs. Northwest's system-wide enrollment exceeds 8,000 on three campuses in Senatobia, Southaven, and Oxford. Senatobia is also the home of The Baddour Center, a residential care facility for mild to moderately mentally retarded adults.

On April 13, 1834 early settler James Peters purchased two sections of land from the Chickasaw Nation for the sum of $1.25 per acre. The land purchased later became the town of Senatobia. The name Senatobia, given by Charles Meriweather, was derived from the Indian word Senatohoba, which means “White Sycamore”—a symbol of "rest for the weary."

Senatobia received its charter as a municipality in 1860, thirteen years prior to the creation of Tate County and one year prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, during which the town's business section was burned twice by Federal troops.

Two Academy Award nominated films have been partially filmed in the town: The Client (1994) and The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996).

As of January 29, 2013, prohibition ended in Senatobia, MS.
