DeSoto Four

Haynesville Shale

With the discovery of the Haynesville Shale and its impact on DeSoto Parish, Logansport has not realized as great an impact locally, as other communities have, but the town has taken advantage of one of its major resources, “water”, and does market its town waters to the gas industry, for use in the Shale process.
