Flora Mississippi is a small town located in Madison County, west of the city of Madison along Highway 49 south. Flora’s downtown is reminiscing of an old town atmosphere where you can join your friends for breakfast at the local café or grab one of the best burgers around at the Blue Rooster by the tracks. It’s a place where the community comes together to cheer on their favorite sports team and support the youth at local school events.
The town is named for Flora Mann Jones, an early resident. Flora was not incorporated until 1886, however there were earlier burial records that indicated a possible community located on the Flora site. Flora cemetery records show some individuals buried in the Flora cemetery dating back to 1821. In 1883, a post office was established in Flora, and that same year Flora became a stop on the newly constructed Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Railroad. The railroad depot is now a museum, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Town of Flora is served by the Madison County School District and East Flora Elementary. The Tri-County Academy, a private school, is also located in Flora.
