Richland Parish Extension
Richland Parish is located in northeast Louisiana in the area known as the North Louisiana Delta County. It lies in the center of a circle of seven parishes with similar geographic characteristics. Starting with Morehouse to the north, and proceeding clockwise, the parishes are West Carroll, East Carroll, Madison, Franklin, and Caldwell, ending with Ouachita Parish to the west. While Richland Parish offers all of the business amenities and services that appeal to commercial establishments, it also affords its residents a high quality of life with good schools, low crime rates and abundant recreational opportunities.
