Leesville Main Street

Leesville Main Street

Leesville, LA

P.O. Box 1191 Located near the center of the parish, Leesville, Louisiana, has served as the parish seat since 1871. The Historic Downtown District/Main Street, centered on Third Street, offers a variety of artistic entertainment through art exhibits, musical performances, businesses, shops, and several annual festivals throughout the year. However, many of the historic buildings are in need of maintenance which includes our Historic Courthouse. Leesville is the home of the JRTC Fort Polk Army base; therefore, we get a lot of visitors from soldiers and their families who are stationed here. So we would like to help owners with maintaining these beautiful buildings with repairs to roofs, replacement of windows, paint, awnings, etc. Leesville Main Street is the core of the community and tells us who we are and who we were, and how the past has shaped us. No one goes to bland suburbs or enclosed shopping malls to learn about our past, explore our culture, or discover our identity. All Main Streets are the places of shared memory where people still come together to live, work and play.
