The Mayor, Town Council and Citizens welcome you to the Town of Jena, Louisiana.  You are our special guest whether you are surfing the internet or a visitor in person to our town.  You will never find a friendlier, more hospitable group of people to visit.  We invite you to explore the pages of this website to learn more about the Town of Jena, known as “A Nice Place to Call Home".

Nestled in the piney woods of Central Louisiana, Jena is a beautiful, historic community and the parish seat of scenic LaSalle Parish.  The surrounding areas have some of the best fishing, hunting and interesting vistas in the United States.  Jena's central location makes it a natural choice for the starting point to explore our region.

Enjoy this website as you whet your appetite to visit us at your earliest convenience.  We think you will agree that Jena is not only “a nice place to call home” but also “a nice place to visit, to do business, to recreate, to enjoy nature, to shop, to dine, to sight-see, to relax, to retire, and to worship God.”

Welcome to all,

Murphy McMillin
