Flower Delivery to Amite, LA

The city is located in Tangipahoa Parish in the southeastern part of Louisiana and is one of the Hammond micropolitan areas. It is the parish seat of Tangipahoa Parish, in which its initial settlement was established on the banks of the Tangipahoa River and opposite the Choctaw Indian village. The city was built on the general speculations that the area was chosen when Chief Baptiste Choctaw welcomed the first settlers, and he was the last chief. Amite is a Choctaw word "red ant" derived from the French "amiti," meaning "friendship" or "thrift." The town was laid out and the land was sold and it began to grow. Amite Station, a hotel, became a major spot for relaxing and dining among travelers. People came from New Orleans to the city to escape the unhealthy conditions in the city and enjoy the natural beauty. The migration increased when yellow fever affected New Orleans.

The city was incorporated as a town when Louisiana left the Union and served as a major meeting spot for Confederate officials involved in supporting and supplying the biggest Confederate training base in Louisiana called Camp Moore. Union Cavalry visited the city, and a troop of Union infantry burned the depot, which destroyed the depot to Camp Moore. Amite city was chosen as the parish seat, and five different buildings served as the courthouse. The city played a major role in the name "Bloody Tangipahoa." and triggered a number of family feuds, but improved law enforcement brought harmony to the area.

Schools and Businesses

The main occupation of the area's residents was running cotton plantations, and it continued to grow as a trading center for cotton farmers. This occupation prompted the establishment of Gullett Gin Company in the city, which became the largest producer of cotton gins in the town. The cotton plant became a war industry production but later folded up. The schools in the city under the Tangipahoa Parish School Board include Oak Forest Academy, West Side Middle School, Amite High Magnet School, and Elementary School. Avas Flowers offers delivery to all the schools in the community and our rates are very affordable. Kindly visit our website for more information.
