After doing years of research on Vernon Parish history, I have learned that we have helped shape national history as national history has helped shape our parish. Many people, famous and infamous, have walked on our soil, drank our water, and breathed our air. We have much history to tell.
I have been asked to write a weekly article covering Vernon Parish history. I'm asking for community input. If you know any location, event, person, etc. of significance to the creation of our parish please email or call (337) 537-0762 and I will research the article if help is needed. If approved, the article will run in Sunday's paper. Please email or call by Friday for Sunday's newspaper.
