The Merryville Heritage Festival is held the last weekend in March. Celebrate the unique heritage of the 'No Man's Land' with skits, entertainment, demonstrations and attractions reminiscent of the 1800's.

The Gothic Jail of DeRidder was completed in 1915, and is believed to be haunted, possibly by the two men that hung for their crimes from the top of the jail stairwell. Tours are now available.

For more info, visit: Gothic Jail Facebook

Our southern atmosphere is sure to put a smile on your face as you visit and discover our many hidden treasures. Our parish is filled with Louisiana's famous foods, good music, and more! You can spend the day indoors antique shopping, grab a tube and head outside to the Quiska Chitto River for a white sandy beach adventure, or visit our local Mennonite back home store featuring delicious homemade baked treats.
