Fisher in Toledo Bend Lake Country

Fisher

The picturesque sawmill Village of Fisher still reflects the nostalgic past of a by-gone era and gives visitors the feeling of stepping back in time.

Built in 1889 by Louisiana Longleaf Lumber Company, the Company owned the entire Village. The Company buildings that survive today are some of the finest examples to be found of the lumber industries own handiwork. Until 1966, all the homes in the town were owned by Louisiana Long Leaf Lumber Company. The town was sold to Boise Cascade, and Boise in turn sold the homes to the residents and the general public.

Each year at the holiday season, the Village of Fisher lights up its historic buildings in style, and it is a sight to see. Lighted from Thanksgiving through New Year's are the old Commissary building (shown at left), the City Hall building, the old Fisher Baptist Church, the Opera House, the Post Office, and an old Kansas City Southern caboose nightly from 5:30 to 10:00pm.

The Village is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located 6 miles south of Many, Louisiana on Hwy 171.

The Town's history is celebrated the 3rd weekend in May with the Fisher Sawmill Days Festival.
