Bossier Parish History
Bossier Parish was created on Feb. 24, 1843 and named for the Louisiana Creole militia general Pierre Evariste Jean Baptiste Bossier. Bossier Parish is also known as Cotton Parish. Bossier parish lies in the extreme northwestern part of the State, fronting Red river on the west for about seventy-five miles, and only separated from Texas by the parish of Caddo. On the north it is bounded by the State of Arkansas. Benton is the parish seat.
