Located in the southwestern region of Louisiana, Allen Parish is home to more than 25,000 residents and was founded in 1912. The parish is named for former Louisiana governor and Confederate General Henry Watkins Allen. The city of Oberlin, the parish seat, is the oldest settlement in Allen Parish and is named after the hometown of the city’s original settlers: Oberlin, Ohio. The parish is known for its beautiful canoeing locations, which includes the Calcasieu River and a section of the 86-mile-long Ouiska “Whiskey” Chitto River. The Elizabeth Town Hall and the Leatherwood Museum in Oakdale are two examples of historic buildings that exemplify the history of this budding parish, which celebrated its centennial anniversary in 2013.
Motor vehicle accidents are common occurrences in Louisiana, with nearly 670 people killed in car crashes in 2013 and over 68,000 more injured.
