East Carroll Parish History 

The original Carroll Parish, before it was divided into "East" and "West" segments, was named for Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Maryland, the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence and the last surviving signer of the document.
Prior to 1814, all of the territory covered by the current East Carroll Parish was part of the now defunct Warren Parish.  
On March 14, 1832 Carroll Parish was created out of the northern part of the original Concordia Parish (created in 1809) and the eastern part of Ouachita Parish.


The parish was split in 1877 into East Carroll Parish and West Carroll Parish, with the Bayou Macon forming the boundary line between the two.

The parish seat of East Carroll parish is Lake Providence.
