Project Description

Port Vincent (Subique’s Ferry) is located at the head of the navigable part of the Amite River in T8S-R4E of the Greensburg Land District. La. Highways 16 and 42 link it with nearby communities. The land area is an average of 15 feet above sea level and consists of ridges, bottoms, and swamps. Pines dominate the ridges and hardwoods in the bottom, with bald cypress and tupelo in the swamps. The soil is fertile and well drained on the ridges with a claypan six to eight inches deep. Cotton was an important at one time, but later gave way to straw­berries and other truck crops.
