Brookhaven is a certified retirement town.

” Brookhaven provides a safe haven for adults and children alike and has been recognized as a “Homemaker’s Paradise” since the early 1900’s and was one of the first cities to receive the prestigious “Seal of Approval” designation by the American Association of Retirement Communities in September, 2005. It is ideally located on Interstate 55, it’s an easy hour’s drive south of Jackson, two hours north of New Orleans and in less than three hours, you can enjoy Mississippi’s beautiful Gulf Coast.”  http://www.visitmississippi.org/retire/brookhaven.html
