As the flat bayous and prairies of south Louisiana give way to the hilly northern part of the state, the historic cultural sway changes too—from French to the Anglo-Saxon tradition. Homer, named for the Greek poet, epitomizes this influence. Located in a late 19th-century hotel, the history and culture of North Louisiana hill country is preserved and celebrated at the city's H.S. Ford Memorial Museum. Homer's Greek Revival-style brick courthouse, completed in 1860, is a rare example of an antebellum courthouse still in use. It is also the showpiece of the city's collection of sites on the National Register of Historic Places. With flowering plants in spring and summer and colorful foliage come autumn, Homer's country roads promise beautiful vistas. A drive through these scenes leads to Lake Claiborne State Park where hiking, camping and water sports abound, while the surrounding area also offers golf courses and hunting lodges.
