East Carroll Parish
An Act was approved on March 14, 1832 for the creation of the Parish of Carroll, out of the northern part of the original Concordia Parish created in 1809 and the eastern part of Ouachita Parish. Carroll Parish was named in honor of Charles Carroll in 1832, a philanthropist, statesman and signer of the Declaration of Independence. Lake Providence was the first seat of government. Carroll Parish was divided into two parishes in 1877. The division solved a feud over the site of the seat of government. Oak Grove was named the parish seat of West Carroll Parish. Bayou Macon formed the boundary between the two parishes. Lake Providence became the parish seat of East Carroll Parish.
