One of the fastest growing communities in all of Louisiana is Stonewall and this Saturday, October 5, Stonewall will celebrate the town's heritage with the annual Bee Gum Festival! 

The Bee Gum community as Stonewall was first known, was actually about 3 miles east of present day Stonewall, and was first settled in the early 1830's by a Colonel Edwards from South Carolina and his family.  Soon after the Edwards were established, they were followed by scores of the Edwards friends and most moved into the area of North Desoto Parish.
Then, in In 1862, the community moved its center about three miles west to the site of the new Texas & Pacific Railroad. The community was given its present name when the railroad stop was named after the legendary Civil War General, Stonewall Jackson.
The Bee Gum Festival not only celebrates the sacrifices of those first settlers but also celebrates modern day citizens with loads of fun and activities.
Held at Stonewall Community Park behind the fire station the festival will feature bounce houses, live music, arts and crafts, fantastic food, clowns and a lot more!
And best of all, admission is absolutely free!
