Webster Parish, Louisiana History and Biographies


In 1871, Webster Parish was created from lands formerly belonging to Bienville, Bossier and Claiborne Parishes and was named for Daniel Webster, the 19th century statesman of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The parish, as have all of the parishes in Louisiana, has had a strong influence from the Spanish, Native American and French. The area is a real mixture of these three long before the English came on the scene.
