In 1835, the United States purchased close to one million acres of land from the Caddo Confederacy of Native Americans; the Louisiana portion became known as Caddo Parish. The Indian agency’s protection of that land delayed the settlement of the parish for 25 years or more after it began in other parts of Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas. The Red River logjam that existed for a few hundred years backed up bayous, which in return created navigable streams and lakes. The uplands contained massive stands of virgin timbers and bountiful fruit, berries, fish, and game.

The Indian agency’s protection of that land delayed the settlement of the parishfor 25 years or more after it began in other parts of Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas. The Red River logjam that existed for a few hundred years backed up bayous, which in return created navigable streamsand lakes. The uplands contained massive stands of virgin timbers and bountiful fruit, berries, fish, and game. The first land patents were sold in 1841, and by 1850, the area was known as Caddo Prairie. For a majority of the next 100 years, steamboat traffic, homesteaders, plantations, subsistence farmers, logging operations, entrepreneurs, and a building boom brought on by the railroad and oil industries uniquely melded to define local, cultural history. Today three towns and five villages are located in north Caddo Parish, while the memories of 10 historic communities remain strong.
  • Researching family history and only having heard of these places from my grandmother, this book gives a nice overview of life in Northwest Louisiana at the earlier part of the 20th century.
    Thanks for putting this together and allowing others access to the information and pictures.

  • I purchsaed this book when I instantly recognized my father-in-laws dad in the cover photo...after a few pages I fell in love with it. If you are from or familar with the Northern Parish of Caddo in Louisiana, you too will fall in love with the familar pictures and inscriptions detailing the history of the area. It stays displayed in our home and almost every person that has noticed it will stop and flip through it pages. I have made several repeat purchases for family members who couldn't put it down when visiting!

  • For any family who had ancestors who lived and worked in the great Pine Island Oil patch, this is a must. A great collection of historical photographs representing the communities of Trees, Oil City, Vivian, and Rodessa, Louisiana. I actually found a rare photo of my great grandfather's residence, and many more relevant of the period.
