• Newcomer Information


    Welcome to Leesville, the best hometown in the world. The City of Leesville is the parish seat of Vernon, where Fort Polk and the Joint Readiness Training Center are located. We are a vibrant community with much to offer, including a welcoming smile, a handshake, an open-door government, and a strong sense of community.

    Leesville is also privileged to have the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce among the key organizations that help develop our community and make it not only a good place to live, but a good place for business to thrive.

    Leesville and the surrounding areas offer some of the finest outdoor recreational opportunities, top-notch educational facilities, excellent medical facilities, cultural amenities, and a very low cost of living.

    The city is situated in the heart of West Louisiana, also known as the Sportsman’s Paradise, surrounded by millions of acres of public land including Kisatchie National Forest.

    We hope you take the time to explore what we have to offer, and that you find, as we have, that the opportunities are limited only by your imagination.
