BASTROP - Parish Seat
Located along a bend of the Bayou Bartholomew, Bastrop is the Parish Seat of Morehouse Parish. It was originally a steamboat port but was slow to develop until the railroad came in in the early 1900s. At that point the town took off. Currently Bastrop is known for paper and wood production. Its largest business is International Paper Company. Downtown Bastrop has been designated a Historic District and was named a "Louisiana Main Street" in 2000. One of the buildings of note is the Courthouse which was recently renovated to its original splendor.
Unincorporated areas of interest in the parish include Beekman, Galion, Gedoie, Gum Ridge, Jones, Log Cabin, McGinty, New Block, Point Pleasant, Shelton, Spyker, Stevenson, Twin Oaks, Upland, Uscarco, Vaughn, Wardville, and Windsor.
