St Francisville, LA
Established in 1809, St. Francisville is the oldest town in the Florida Parishes. Below where St. Francisville is located currently, was a
settlement called Bayou Sara in the 1790’s. When this settlement was destroyed by flooding and fires, many of the structures and artifacts
were hauled up the bluff into St. Francisville, where they are still standing. The town is referred to as “two miles long and two yards wide,” but
that definitely doesn’t mean they have nothing to offer! Stop in at one of the unique shops, historical homes, beautiful churches, or
breathtaking parks and you will agree with that! Spanish moss trees grow throughout the town, lending a beautiful southern comfort to the
atmosphere.

authors and writers were born or reside in the small town of Greenville; local legend says that the Greenville water grows writers. The author
