Famous for our 1861 antebellum courthouse and Nationally Registered Historic District, Homer has plenty to see and do for everyone. Shop our North Main Street antique shops, eat at locally owned restaurants, experience unique local retail opportunities, visit the Herbert S. Ford Museum, and see local artists at work in the Homer Art Center.

Nearby Lake Claiborne State Park provides numerous recreation opportunities like fishing, canoeing, RV hook ups, camping, biking, and two nationally recognized disc golf courses. Visit Homer and Claiborne Parish and you just might want to stay!
