Welcome to the Village of Folsom! Our quaint and cozy village is located in the rolling hills and towering pines of Northwest St. Tammany Parish.
Folsom was established in 1904 at the Alma Post Office which was located 12 miles north of Covington. George N. Fendlason, the founder, is said to have named the town after President Grover Cleveland's wife, Francis Folsom Cleveland. A depot was later built in 1905 and Folsom became a notable logging community. By 1908, the village had made such significant progress that a plan was set to begin its incorporation. Finally, on March 12, 1915, the Village of Folsom was incorporated into the State of Louisiana.
In June of 1908 the St. Tammany Farmer, a local newspaper, reported that Folsom had several prosperous general merchandise stores, a drug store, a barbershop, a meat market, and what was said to be, "one of the best hotels you could find anywhere". Business was booming in this quiet and peaceful area. Soon, Folsom would mature into what is now referred to as "God's Country".
Today, the town of Folsom is a community well known for its flourishing plant nurseries and beautiful horse farms. The countryside is dotted with exotic animal farms such as emu and ostrich. It's character and country charm is cherished and appreciated by residents and visitors alike.
