East Feliciana Parish
Founded in 1824, East Feliciana Parish was formed by splitting Feliciana Parish at Thompson Creek into east and west.

In the heart of Louisiana's "plantation country", East Feliciana parish grew and prospered, with cotton as the center of that growth, until the Civil War.   The time period after the war until the early 1900's saw a downturn in the parish's economy.  Diversifying the agricultural interests of the parish in the 1930s bro ught prosperity back into the parish.  In current times, beef cattle and ti mber production remain the two leading agricultural interests within the parish. 

 The Louisiana State Insane Asylum was established near Jackson, Louisiana, in 1 847. It was greatly enlarged under the administration of Dr. John Welch Jones, who was appointed as superintendent in 1874. The institution was later called East Louisiana State Hospital.

The parish seat is Clinton.
