Flora MS Real Estate for Sale - Homes, Condos, Land, and Lots in Flora Mississippi
With a population of less than 2,000 people and a total area of just 3.4 square miles, Flora, MS is a small town that is part of the Jackson Metropolitan Statistical Area.
While the town itself is not home to many attractions, its location puts it within close proximity to many of the Jackson area attractions.
The history of Flora dates back to 1882 when a new rail line connecting Jackson to Yazoo City was constructed.
One of the stations along the railroad was located in what is now known as Flora, MS. At the time, it was customary to name train stations in the honor of important people. Knowing this, the general manager in charge of railroad surveys and constructions in the area decided to name the station in honor of a woman named Flora Mann Jones. Jones, who was the 33-year-old wife of W.B. Jones, was known for her delightful personality and sound character. The name stuck when the town became incorporated in 1886. Today, the Flora Depot is still located in the town, though it now stands as a historical museum.
Despite its small size, Flora, MS is served by the radio station WYAB 103.9 FM as well as by a free monthly community newspaper called The Flora News.
Furthermore, the town is home to a newly developed Industrial Park offering plenty of opportunities for industry and development.
For those who enjoy spending time outdoors, the Flora area has much to offer.
The nearby Barnett Reservoir offers plenty of opportunities for camping, fishing, boating and more. The Mississippi Petrified Forest, which is the only petrified forest located east of the Mississippi River, is also located just outside of the city limits. Here, visitors can enjoy walking along a six block long paved trail, which ends in an Earth Science Museum containing a collection of petrified wood, fossils and minerals.
As might be expected from a small town, Flora, MS is known for its community values and celebrations.
Events that occur each year in Flora, MS include the Grand Marshall Christmas Parade, the Car and Bike Show, the TCA harvest festival and the Heritage festival. Children who live in Flora, MS are served by the Madison County School District, though the Tri-County Academy serving students from kindergarten through twelfth grade is also located in the town.
