Welcome to the Vernon Parish Chamber of Commerce website. We're located in the City of Leesville and in Vernon Parish. We're the voice of the business and professional community. We're dedicated to the growth, economic development and the quality of life of all residents.
We're nestled in the heart of West Central Louisiana with rolling hills, long-leaf pines, creeks, bayous and lakes, providing year-round beauty. You will find that we maintain a “neighborly attitude,” creating a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. We take great pride in being the home of Fort Polk and the Joint Readiness Training Center.
Vernon Parish is a great place to live with excellent schools and medical facilities. It is also the perfect place to retire.
