Duson LA, originally known as “Duson Station” the town laid out by J.G. Parkerson, general manager of the Louisiana Western Railroad. By August 30, 1880, the railroad line from New Orleans to Houston was completed and passenger and freight service began. It merged with Southern Pacific Railroad in 1900. The village of Duson was incorporated on December 16, 1909, named after the land developer Curley Duson and installed Adolph De Jean as the first mayor.
In 1927, St Theresa Catholic Church was completed. Cotton farming was the main agriculture for the area. Three cotton gins were in Duson LA until the mid 1960s. Fires destroyed two and the third was torn down. After World War II, small lots east of Duson LA were developed, with small houses using brick siding paper on the exterior. Because of that, the area became known as “Paper Town.”
