Located in Washington Parish, Bogalusa, was founded as a company town in the early 1900s. It was built so fast that its nickname became the Magic City, and once held the distinction of having the largest lumber mill – the Great Southern Lumber Company – in the nation. Since that time, this hamlet on the Pearl River has proudly worn the title of “mill town.” On July 4th, the city hosts its founding (and the nation’s, of course), as well as the Bogalusa Paper Queen Ball. This distinctly southern Louisiana town was the birthplace of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa and New Orleans blues icon Professor Longhair, who wrote and immortalized the song “Tipitina”. To add to Bogalusa’s mystique, the town hosts the springtime Louisiana Western Festival (complete with rodeos), the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival, the Festival in the Park, and its own Mardi Gras parade.
