Located in the north central region of Louisiana, Winn Parish was founded in 1852 and is home to 15,000 residents. Saline Bayou, a 100-mile long blackwater river, separates Winn Parish from neighboring Natchitoches Parish to the West. Winn Parish was formed from parts of Catahoula, Natchitoches, and Rapides parishes and named for Rapides legislator Walter Winn who pushed for legislation to create the new parish. The most famous resident to come from Winn Parish is none other than Huey P. Long, who was born in city of Winnfield, the parish seat and largest city, in 1893. The Louisiana Forest Festival is held annually in Winn Parish, where participants compete in lumberjack-themed sporting competitions. The parish is neighbors with Jackson Parish to the north and Grant Parish to the south. Winn Parish is also home to Kisatchie National Forest, which is the state’s only national forest.
