Frisson - DeSoto Parish Louisiana

Frierson

The Frierson family was eminent in early DeSoto Parish with their plantation being one of only a few which survived the War Between the States and as such found its greatest period of prosperity in the 1880s.

Located approximately three miles north of Interstate 49 at exit 186 along LA Highway 175, Frierson - originally called Frierson Mills, but Mills was dropped around the turn of the century - was named after the huge S.J. Frierson plantation which once covered 10,000 acres.
