About Alexandria, Louisiana: Alexandria, Louisiana has a rich history that dates back to the 1700s. Located on the Red River in Central Louisiana, it served as a natural settlement due to its strategic geographic location. The area was originally home to a community supporting activities of the adjacent Spanish outpost, and Alexandria eventually became the parish seat of Rapides parish. The town was platted by Alexander Fulton, who received it as a land grant from Spain in 1785. Fulton and another trader, William Miller, established a business across the Red River from the outpost and acquired thousands of acres that they then resold to settlers attracted to the rich lands along Bayou Rapides, Bayou Robert, and Bayou Beouf. Today, Alexandria with Pineville serves as a distribution center for farm products, timber, and livestock, and light manufacturing is also important. Nearby attractions include the Hot Wells Health Resort, Cotile Lake Recreation Area, and units of Kisatchie National Forest.
