Preservation in Progress

Denham Springs is, simply put, “the place to be.” We have experienced phenomenal growth over the last couple of decades, with new residences and businesses continuing to emerge. Yet, possessing a rich and cherished history, we continually strive to maintain balance between the past, present and the future.

Many residents can trace family roots to the beginning of our history. We treasure strong ties to our churches, schools and businesses. We never want to lose the roots, historical qualities and values that make this wonderful city. As Denham Springs is such a desirable place to live, our people don’t leave and those who must, maintain strong bonds with those who remain. With true southern hospitality, we welcome new families into our midst and never tire of hearing their testimonies of what a great town we have.

While we welcome and encourage new development, we are deeply tied to our ancestral past and we honor that past by preserving, to the extent possible, historic buildings, homes, landmarks, relics and photos. This preservation continues to evolve with the restoration of Old City Hall as a landmark museum and welcome center in the heart of the Historic District; our acclaimed and active Main Street Program; and Denham’s designation as a Tree City.

We want to preserve our beautiful old trees, while we continue planting new trees throughout the community. The Denham Springs Garden Club has kept Denham Springs’ residential and commercial areas beautiful for decades and now works in harmony with Denham Springs Green to insure that our offspring will continue to have plentiful, beautiful, oxygen- and shade-producing trees for the future.

We invite anyone with information, photos or items relative to the history of Denham Springs to share it so that we may continue our “preservation in progress.” Items may be dropped at Old City Hall, 115 Mattie Street, Monday–Friday from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. The museum is closed for lunch.
