Fort Jesup State Historic Site sits deep in the rural country
between the Louisiana Purchase’s oldest city, Natchitoches,
and the trophy fish-rich waters of Toledo Bend Reservoir. For

and facing enormous growing pains. After the 1803 Louisiana
Purchase, the United States’ western borders were not clearly

claimed west Louisiana. The area became known as the “Neutral
Ground,” an infamously lawless region that led to Fort Jesup’s
founding in 1822.
