A growing city with small town flavor
What a charming place to call Home. Florence is one of a very few cities in the Jackson Metro area that has experience tremendous growth over the past two decades but still feels like a small town in many ways. This is a tribute to the people that live in this community and the businesses that understand the needs and desires of the folk that reside here.
Located along Highway 49, south of Jackson, Florence is an easy commute to the surrounding cities and towns. Our schools are second to none, regularly receiving the district's highest rating and have been a magnet for families to this area. Continuous business growth in Florence is evident along Highway 49, Main Street, Earl Clark Drive and College Street. Several medical offices, attorney firms, restaurants, convenience stores, and Copiah Bank have all become part of the landscape over the past several years.
The current relocation and expansion of Berry's Seafood Restaurant, the new Fred's discount store, the expansion of Ramey's grocery store, the completion of Erlich Road, and the relocation of Polk's Drugs at the southern end of Florence are all testaments to the high level of confidence many have in the future of Florence. Florence is a great place to live and grow a family, or a business.
Come home to Florence! You'll be glad you did!
