Rich Historical Background
Winnfield and Winn Parish have a long and fascinating history. Native Americans considered this area their home over a thousand years ago. Both Spanish and French soldiers explored the rolling hills. Several Civil War battles were fought on this land, and outlaws were shot with brave settlers traveling westward. Many Winnfield residents have gained national prominence in all walks of life. Three, in particular, served as Governor of Louisiana – Huey P. Long, Earl K. Long, and O.K. Allen.
Winn Parish is known to house some of the most arresting natural settings in the South, truly making us a “Sportsman’s Paradise.” Located in the heart of the Kisatchie National Forest, where the Gum Springs Horse Trail is located, Winn Parish is stunning. Winnfield is home to the beloved Louisiana Forest Festival.
