Benton, Louisiana

Town in Louisiana, United States

Benton is a town in, and the parish seat of, Bossier Parish, in the U.S. state of Louisiana. The population was 1,948 at the 2010 census but grew to 2,087 in 2018.[3] The town is named for 19th century U.S. SenatorThomas Hart Benton, a Democrat from Missouri and an ally of U.S. PresidentAndrew Jackson.[4]

The larger Bossier City is located south of Benton. In Benton Square downtown near the Bossier Parish School Board office, the town maintains several historical buildings, including primitive cabins, a one-room schoolhouse museum, and the boyhood home of William Clark Hughes, who was the Speaker of the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1926 to 1928.

History[edit]

On April 3, 1999, a powerful F4tornado roared through portions of the town killing six people and injuring 90.

The Palmetto Country Club opened in 1954. The Shreveport Kiwanis Invitational was held at the country club from 1965 to 1969. On December 31, 2014, the club closed after recruitment drives and restructuring of the membership plan failed to make the facility financially solvent. Owner John H. Ward and a partner had run the club since 2013. Ward invested $250,000 over the past year in a vain bid to keep the facility afloat.[6] Ward added that Palmetto "is not alone in this struggle and two dominating factors are in play: memberships are decreasing nationwide, especially in the under-40 bracket; and the industry has been overbuilt making growth within golf clubs very difficult."[7]
