Independence Real Estate
Nestled between Amite and Tickfaw, just off of Highway 55, is the community of
Independence. This small rural town prides itself on hosting year-long civic and
holiday events that draw residents and locals from surrounding towns including
annual Christmas Parade, Easter Eggtravaganza and July 4th Celebration.
This community was founded by Italian immigrants and dubs itself as “Little
Italy.” Paying homage to its townspeople, in 2008 an Annual Sicilian Heritage
Festival was created and continues to maintain a strong following today.
There are some great “mom and pop” restaurants and shops that line the main
thoroughfare of Independence. One such place is the Barb-B-Que Station, a
converted old time gas station and the place to go for specialty barbeque dishes and
sandwiches. Their signature Brisket Burger will keep you coming back for more!
Homes for sale in Independence offer wide open unfenced lots and spaces.
Independence Real Estate has small A-framed wooden houses with porches,
brick single-family homes and larger customized homes on spacious lots.
