It’s a great place to call home!

Welcome to Mississippi’s Success Community. Located just North of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, South of the Stone County,  and flanked on the East and West by Highways 15 and 49, respectfully, “Success” is a quaint, unassuming community. Those that make their home in this small community know they have the best of both worlds: quite, country living, yet close to town! Here, one can still hear the sounds of new born calves in spring, enjoy the smell of fresh cut hay in the summer, and see fire flies light up the skies as bright as the stars in early fall. Evenings are filled with the Cicada’s song, and an occasional Chuck Widow’s Will call to its mate.

Success Community is home to the white tail deer, red fox, opossum, black racer, the endangered gopher turtle and even a very special “Gopher” frog found no where else in the world. It’s also home to the pine lily that grows in the Pine Plantations in DeSoto National Forest, to butter cups, and butterflies. To William Carey College, St. Patrick’s High School, Tradition, and The Woods. Three churches, Success Baptist Church, Morris Hill Baptist, and Poplar Head United Methodist Church, are a significant part of the community’s rich history.

Pine Lily in Success Community

Pine Lily in Success

A once thriving community with its own school, post office, grocery stores, and sprawling farms “Success” nearly vanished. A sweet twist of fate turned the tide for a successful revival. In the aftermath of the late August 2005 storm, Katrina, the straightening and widening of Highway 67 to four lanes cut off a section of the old highway that ran through the heart of the Success Community, requiring that section of the road to be renamed. It was rightfully restored as “Success Road” re-establishing the area as a distinct community within the boundaries of Saucier.

With the new four lane highway came new schools, residential developments and businesses. Holly Berry Hills Christmas Tree Farm, Dale’s Taxidermy, Lott’s Pecans, Artist, Elizabeth Huffmaster’s, Success Hunting Supply, Dale’s Floor Installations, DDLJ, and Success Cottage, are successful businesses within the Success Community.

Thank you for stopping by to visit. We hope you will enjoy the history and getting acquainted with this wonderful place we call home!

Success Community-wide YARD SALE!

Success Community-wide Yard Sale

Jewelry Sales Success Community-wide Yard Sale

The committee FOR SUCCESS and SUCCESS SENIORS will sponsor a Community-wide Yard Sale at the Success Civic Center on December 1 beginning at 8:30 AM. Over 20 Success Citizens have gathered treasures to sell at the event.

The response to the Community-wide Yard Sale has been great. The Success Community-wide Sale is the first of what is hope to become an Bi-annual event to help local residents generate additional income at Christmas time and in late Spring.

Home grown winter fruit, vegetables, jellies, and canned goods will also be offered during the December Sale and Spring veggies and fruit during the late Spring event. Success Seniors will be grilling hotdogs served with chips and drink for lunch at both events.

Join us December 1, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM.

Remember, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!” Let’s shop Success Community this Saturday morning!
