Bossier Parish is home to roughly 122,000 residents and is located on the Arkansas/Louisiana state border. The parish was officially founded in 1843 and was named after Pierre Everiste Jean Baptiste Bossier, nineteenth-century Louisiana Creole militia general, state senator, and U.S. Representative from Natchitoches Parish. The parish seat is located in the city of Benton and the largest city is Bossier City, which is home to over 60,000 people. Bossier Parish originally included what are now the parishes of Red River and Bienville, before each became an independent parish in 1871. Part of the Red River National Wildlife Refuge is located in Bossier Parish, in addition to a part of scenic Lake Bistineau State Park, which is home to some of most beautiful cypress trees in the State.
