About Bogalusa

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bogalusa is located in pine forests beside the Pearl River. The area was heavily settled by indigenous "Indian" tribes, chiefly Choctaw, and by European peoples migrating after the Revolutionary War, many of whom were British "Tory" sympathizers. The area has a history of determined self-reliance - once having been the independent nation of West Florida. 

Around the turn of the 20th Century it was the location of the largest sawmill in the world, serving customers worldwide, and has been home of a paper mill of international importance since the 1920's.
