Welcome to the Vernon Parish Chamber of Commerce website! We're located in the City of Leesville and 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 for all of Vernon Parish.
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. We honor them for their service and strive to be their family and “home away from home.”
Vernon Parish is a great place to live and raise families with its safe, small-town environment offering excellent schools and medical facilities. It is also the perfect place to retire. Look around on our website and let us know if you have any questions!
