BP Journal Has Launched Bienville Parish Historic Photo Archive

In addition to local news and sports, the Bienville Parish Journal has just launched the Bienville Parish Historic Photo Archive.  The purpose and mission of this archive is for the preservation of local historical photographs, homemade films, and memorabilia, while making them easily accessible.  The collection currently has hundreds of photos dating back to the turn of the twentieth century including vintage family photos, photos of the different Bienville Parish courthouses, festivals, sports teams, schools photos, newspaper clippings, and a collection of Bonnie and Clyde photos.  Hundreds more photos will be added to the collections in the coming days.   

To access the photo collections, click here or go to BienvilleParishJournal.com and click on “Historic Photos.” 

The Bienville Parish Journal encourages everyone to add your historic photos which relate to Bienville Parish to the archive.  It’s free and easy.  Your photos will be preserved for posterity and will be made available for easy access on the website.  To add your historic photos to the archive, please email the Bienville Parish Journal at BPJNewsLA@gmail.com.
