Communities

The Village of Palmetto is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values their residents hold dear. Small town values, guided growth, preservation of historical, cultural, and natural heritage are just a few of the core principles that make Village of Palmetto a wonderful place to call home.

Located on Hwy. 10, between Melville and Hwy. 71, Palmetto earned its name from the plentiful plants that grow in the area. Before a sign was made for the train depot, fronds of a palmetto plant were nailed to the building. The spirit of early Palmetto is still felt at the community’s general store, which has been open since the 1930s.
