Camp Moore Confederate Museum

Camp Moore Confederate Museum

Today, Camp Moore is a museum and is home to hundreds of artifacts. It has a genealogy library where visitors can research names of ancestors or look up some little known fact in the library. Volunteers are eager to share their knowledge - help with a little research or recount the many stories of Camp Moore written and documented in letters and diaries. The weekend before Thanksgiving, every year, Camp Moore hosts a Civil War re-enactment. Lawn chairs and blankets are strongly recommended to provide comfort to the visitors watching the Union attacks on the camp - finally disabling it in 1864. All other times of the year, Camp Moore is open Wednesday - Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM . The last tour begins at 3PM.

www.tangitourism.com


Amite

, incorporated in 1861, is the parish seat. Located in the center of Tangipahoa Parish, it is easily accessible from any location within the area. Amite is well known for its oyster industry, dating back to 1949, and hosts the annual Oyster Festival each March. Downtown Amite is on the rebound with a number of quaint shops and unique stores. Just east of Amite is some of the prettiest rolling countryside you will ever see. Here you will find nurseries, horse and cattle pastures, the skeet club, Springview Country Club and the Sandy-hollow Wildlife Management area. Amite lies at the crossroads of Highway 51 North and South and Highway 16 East and West. Interstate 55 is to the west just outside city limits. The Illinois Central Railroad runs through the town with businesses and residences on either side. Everyone needs a break from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Amite offers an educational, entertaining, and relaxing environment. The Tangipahoa Parish Fair and the Chamber of Commerce Bon A ppet ite Festival, both held in October, are among the social functions which can be enjoyed by old and young alike. A Christmas parade is a great way to end the year.

Little Italy

Independence

, “Little Italy” of Louisiana, was created as a result of the New Orleans to Jackson route of the Great Northern Railroad in the 1880’s. It was first called “Rabbit Town” and later called “Uncle Sam”. Feeling a lack of dignity in the name, a Welch immigrant named Christopher Evens gave the settlement the name of Independence. Italian families searching for a place to settle in the 1880’s were attracted by the thriving strawberry industry of the area. Independence slowly became a predominately Sicilian/Italian community. It is more diverse culturally today but is still characterized by its excellent Italian cuisine and its hard working and friendly people.

I’ll never forget that day … early one Saturday morning in June … I’d just awakened and stepped out on my deck to enjoy a yawn and a stretch when suddenly both were interrupted by what I saw a few houses over across the park. Cars, pickups, SUV’s, and mini-vans were pulling off the side street at all angles with drivers and passengers jumping out and hurrying across a yard. Oh, no, I thought, something must have happened to my neighbor! Heart pounding, mouth agape but yawn forgotten, I heard more doors slamming down my own street. Same scene, different house. Surely couldn’t be two emergencies … That’s when it hit me – it was the day of the first Ponchatoula City Wide Yard Sale! And “first” is what it turned out to be… For with the quality of the items, the welcoming friendliness of our people and the bargain of the prices … It’s now the “Annual Ponchatoula City Wide Yard Sale” taking place the first Saturday of each June and stretching well beyond the city limits! Participating residents, churches, schools, organizations and businesses pay a small fee to have their locations highlighted on a map of our area and are given special yard sale signs to display. On the big day, Chamber of Commerce members stand on downtown corners handing out the free maps to happy shoppers. Some folks are so eager to get started they don’t even stop for the maps, choosing to scurry from street to street and road to road stopping at all the signs and sales. Lots of laughter and friendly chatting surround even the most serious bargain hunters Plan to get in on the fun but be sure to come early and with an empty vehicle as you’ll be leaving with a full one! For more information, visit www.ponchatoulachamber.com.

By Kathryn J. Martin Enjoy a festival-like atmosphere but without pressing crowds and parking a mile or more away? Ponchatoula offers just that each first full weekend in March and again in November! Along the tracks you’ll find tents galore set up displaying everything from buckles to birdhouses, buttons to bags, coins to candles, crockery to crocheting, ornaments to ornate barn woods, doll and dog clothes to dishes, kitchen needs to Coke bottles, political buttons to plants, jars to jams – and that’s not even the half of it! Metal sculptures, cypress lawn furniture, neon signs, paintings – not to mention all the foods available both in the tents and the restaurants nearby offering everything from comfort foods to fine dining. And the children aren’t left out with fun things like face painting, pony rides and a petting zoo to name a few. The stores downtown get in on the act as well with extra booths outside and special bargains inside and out. Each store is different and collectors and shoppers come year ‘round from distant states to load up on collectibles and antiques such as art, furniture, old advertising signs, toys, jewelry, turquoise, stones, rocks and shells and plenty more. As if that’s not enough, the Louisiana Chapter of the Train Collectors Association (an International Non-Profit organization of railroad enthusiasts) sets up layouts and vendor booths in the gym of a local downtown church. All this and more within short walking distance. And forget what your mama said about not talking to strangers. All the “ooohing” and “ahhhing” is meant to be shared with the smiling friendly folks you’ll meet. So charter a bus or come by yourself for some enjoyable ambling, admiring and eating on these unforgettable weekends!
