St. Helena Parish
in beautiful Louisiana.
Culture and Traveler's Guide
One of Louisiana's historic Florida Parishes,
was established in 1810. It is
located a few minutes off Interstate 55, which enters the state in the area described as the
"toe" of Louisiana. In fact, boots are very much in evidence in this rural region. Visitors
will enjoy the cuisine at Bear Creek Steakhouse, located on Highway 16 in Montpelier. Pine
forests scent the air at the St. Helena Forest Festival held in Greensburg the last Saturday
in August. The Amite River forms the western boundary of the parish and the Tickfaw flows
along the eastern side. Louisiana Highway 10, once known as the Choctaw Trail, crosses the
parish and is a beautiful scenic drive. Visit the Old Jail and the original Florida Parish
Land Office, located in the parish seat of Greensburg. Inspiration Park, near Kentwood,
offers camping and meditation facilities.
