Amite County

County History

While Mississippi was still a territory, Amite County was organized, February 24, 1809. Its name is derived from the Amite River, the two branches of which water its soil, and that stream was thus designated by the French in commemoration of their friendly treatment by the Indians. Amite was originally organized from Wilkinson County, and in 1870 a part was taken from it and attached to Lincoln County. Subsequently, from its eastern area were formed the counties of Pike, Marion, Perry, Greene and Lamar. The county seat is Liberty; which was incorporated in 1828, and its largest town today is Gloster. At the time of its establishment, Amite contained a population of about 1,500, and as of 2000, the population is 13,599. It is part of the McComb, Mississippi Micropolitan Statistical Area. Amite County is bordered by Wilkinson County (west), Franklin County (north), Lincoln County (northeast), Pike County (east), Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana (southeast), St. Helena Parish, Louisiana (south) and East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana.
