Jonesville
Jonesville
Louisiana
View all marks
Jonesville is the largest town in Catahoula Parish, Louisiana, United States, at the confluence of the Ouachita, Tensas, and Little rivers. The three rivers become the Black River at Jonesville, though the "Black" is primarily the continuation of the Ouachita River. A new bridge has been built over the Black River. After some miles, the Black flows into the Red River. The Jonesville population was 2,265 at the 2010 census. The parish seat is Harrisonburg to the north, which is even smaller than Jonesville. The four rivers which intersect near Jonesville are all subject to flooding. There are surrounding soybean and cotton fields. An occasional plantation house is reminiscent of the former slavery-based economy that once empowered a few white planters. The population shrank by half when a textile mill shut down in the late 1980s.
