The Front Porch Community

The Village of Elizabeth once known as the "Town of Elizabeth" has a unique history. The name Elizabeth was chosen as a tribute to the daughter of Sam Parks, one of the men who established the Calcasieu Paper Mill. Elizabeth was carefully planned and held the component of a town built to feed the lumber mill and made every effort to making them superior. On January 23, 1964, Gov. Jimmie H. Davis signed a proclamation making Elizabeth the fifth incorporated town in Allen Parish. The Town hospital for the mill, now holds Elizabeth's Village Hall.
