A Diversifying Community

An interior parish located roughly 65 miles north of New Orleans, Washington Parish was once a timber and paper industry hub but is now home to many agriculture, manufacturing, food processing, retail trade, and services businesses. The area is accessible by two local airports, located in Bogalusa and Franklinton, as well as Louis Armstrong International Airport to the south, multiple interstate highway systems, and six major freight lines.
