Cuba is proudly referred to as “Alabama’s Front Porch” as it sits on the Mississippi border on interstate 20/59 and Hwy 80 it is the busiest entry point into the state. Originally inhabited by Native Americans of the Choctaw Nation Cuba was first settled by a Euro-American from central Alabama, his family and enslaved African-Americans in 1852 when the Norfolk Southern Railway was being built. Cuba then quickly expanded and was incorporated in 1890 with a population of 265 residents according to census records (reflecting the Three-Fifths Compromise).  By 1861, the town had a thriving farming industry and a sizable truck-crop enterprise. Cuba reached its peak population of 719 residents in 1920.  As of the 2010 census Cuba had 346 residents.

Cuba is home to the Southern Logging and Timer Co.  and McElroy Trucking as primary employers, many residents also commute to nearby cities for work.  It’s quiet lifestyle, convenient location and affordable property makes Cuba a great place to call home.
