Varied cultures, diverse traditions, charm & hospitality

Founded in 1898, the Town of Zwolle, Louisiana is a small community located in Sabine Parish, in the westernmost portion of the state, near Toledo Bend Lake.

Rich in history and cultural background, Zwolle offers a high quality of living - rural style. Zwolle's claim to fame is that each year it plays host to two major festivals - The Zwolle Tamale Fiesta and the Zwolle Loggers and Forestry Festival. Also, the town is of course renowned for its delicious tamales!

In September of 1999, the Town of Zwolle was chosen as a recipient of a $25,000 grant through the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities to fund a comprehensive history project, including a book on the community's history. The project helped the town to preserve a part of its valuable history.
