City of Kentwood

entwood, incorporated in 1891, and named after settler Amos Kent, is a beautiful area that encompasses acres of dairy and grain farms. Kentwood celebrates their roots and their favorite daughter, Britney Spears, at the Kentwood Historical and Cultural Arts Museum. The memorabilia features a military exhibit to honor those who have served our country. Just south of Kentwood is the Camp Moore Civil War Museum. Originally a Confederate Training Facility, Camp Moore features a Civil War cemetery, a museum and Civil War reenactments throughout the year.


C

Camp Moore

amp Moore, established as the largest Confederate Training Camp in the Western Theater, trained soldiers for combat throughout the South. Many of its troops participated in the Battle of Baton Rouge and the seige of Port Hudson. Strategically located to sup port the Confederate efforts to control the Mississippi River, Camp Moore posed a great military threat to the Union forces.

Kari Wheeler

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 Tuesday - Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The last tour begins at 3 p.m.

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.

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.

GLOBAL WILDLIFE An African Safari

M E E T T A N G I P A H O A

Four steps onto a tram and you’re transported to an African Safari-and it’s only minutes away. Nestled in the woods and pasture lands of Tangipahoa Parish is the Global Wildlife Center. Here visitors recieve an up close and personal look at 3,000 hoofed animals, representing 30 species. Some of the animals are on the endangered list and Global is doing its part to save these endangered species by offering a safe, free-roaming environment for the animals. Deer, antelope, camels, zebras, American bison from Aisa, India, Iran, Iraq, Africa and North America are all found grazing the grasses under clusters of trees scattered around the 900-acre refuge. While traveling on the tram for the 1.5 hourtour, animals run to greet the visitors...it’s snacktime. Cups of food can be fed to the animals and the more you feed them,the friendler they get. Camels named Aladdin, Jasmine, Sally and Daphne nuzzle your neck and nibble on your ear. They’re not getting fresh...they’re looking for your cup of food. One day, Camille was eagerly chasing the tram taking every opportunity to eat from the cups generously offered by visitors. Suddenly Camille took several steps backwards and delivered a baby giraffe while tram riders watched in amazement. As suddenly as the baby was born...the newborn moved its ears and gradually raised to its feet. All onlookers cheered. They were actual paricipants of events only seen on television and “Wild Kingdom.”


“Little Italy” Independence

Traditional Italian bread, cookies and cuisine can be found in Independence. A visitor knows where Independence is by the Italian colors (red, green and white) painted on the town’s water tower and the small statuette of the town’s patron saint, St. Joseph, located in the park toward the center of town. Sicilian immigrants first came to Independence in the late 1880s to work as strawberry laborers. Many began as pickers working for $1.50 to $1.75 per day, and within a year saved enough from their wages to buy their own farms. Independence Italians continued to operate stawberry farms, and by 1905, Independence had become Louisiana’s primary shipping center for strawberries. It wasn’t long before the Italians invested in businesses, small factories and a small electric power plant. As the population and cultures of Tangipahoa grew, Independence Italians maintained many of their homeland traditions.

City of Hammond

M E E T T A N G I P A H O A

Hammond is the cultural center for Tangipahoa Parish. Located at the cross-roads of I-12 and I-55, Hammond is home to a number of fine restaurants, several modern shopping centers and many beautiful parks for the entire family. The city is named for Peter Hammond, a Swedish native who settled here in the 1820’s. Peter bought large tracts of pine forests and began making kegs and barrels from pine trees, using the resin for processing turpentine, tar, pitch and retarred coal, which he sold. The Hammond homestead was located on East Charles Street and today, a massive oak tree known as the Peter Hamond Oak marks the burial place of Peter Hammond and his family. The establishment of Hammond brought people from all over the country. Many would come to escape the harsh northern winters. Educators were drawn to Southeastern Louisiana University to teach. Southeastern Louisiana University, which is one of the fastest growing universities in the nation, is also located in Hammond. As a major university, Southeastern offers a full slate of theatrical and musical performances each year, and Southeastern provides the local sports enthusiasts with some of the best NCAA collegiate sporting events. The arts come alive throughout the year in Hammond. From the month-long Fanfare celebration at Southeastern Louisiana University to local stage productions, Hammond is quickly becoming the art center of the parish. Fanfare, a community-wide month-long salute to the arts and humanities is sponsored by SLU each October.


Groups like the Columbia Players, the Hammond Cultural Foundation, the Hammond Art Guild and SLU departments of visual arts, theater and dance sponsor a variety of cultural functions year-round. Hammond also hosts the Black Heritage Festival for local citizens and visitors as well. These festivals are unique and offer something d i f f e r e n t t o a l l . H a m m o n d ’s historic district has one of the most visually attractive, early 20th century brick commercial structures in the state. The Illinois Central Railroad Depot, a Queen Anne style building, was built in 1912 and continues to serve Tangipahoa Parish as the second busiest passenger s t o p i n L o u i s i a n a o u t s i d e o f New Orleans.

Town of Roseland

Kari Wheeler

Roseland is nestled against the northern city limits of Amite and was incorprated in 1892. The town was named after the Cherokee Rose, a white rose that grows wild in the area. Roseland is the center of the parish’s lumber and agriculture center.
