The Fort DeRussy State Historic Site on the Red River consists of an earthen fort and water battery. Union forces captured the fort as part of the Red River campaign in 1864.  The fort became a Louisiana State Historic Site in 1999.  Some of the earthworks, protected by the Friends of Fort DeRussy, are still discernible.  A cemetery is accessible from Route 1192.
