Our southern atmosphere is sure to put a smile on your face as you visit and discover our many hidden treasures. Our parish is filled with Louisiana's famous foods, good music, and more! You can spend the day indoors antique shopping, grab a tube and head outside to the Quiska Chitto River for a white sandy beach adventure, or visit our local Mennonite back home store featuring delicious homemade baked treats.

Looking for a little history? Visit our parish courthouse grounds and see the "Hanging Jail"; once called a majestic castle by Popular Mechanics magazine. Built in 1914 during the hay day of the Lumber Industry, the Jail's grand architecture symbolized the status of the young booming sawmill town in which it was built. In its early years the Jail house many of Outlaws that sought refuge in "The Neutral Strip" also known as "The Bad Lands" or "No Mans Land".

   NO Matter the season, you will find some great entertainment here...
