East Feliciana

The parish was part of Feliciana Parish, which was founded in 1810 and then divided, in 1824, into East Feliciana Parish and West Feliciana Parish. Feliciana is derived from a Spanish rendering of the French name "Felicité" which means happiness.[3] The Louisiana State Insane Asylum was established near Jackson, Louisiana, in 1847. It was greatly enlarged and improved under the administration of Dr. John Welch Jones, who was appointed as superintendent in 1874. The institution was later called East Louisiana State Hospital.

The Margaret Dixon Correctional Institute is located in Jackson, as well. It opened in 1976 and is named for the crusading managing editor of the Baton Rouge Morning Advocate, who argued for the decentralization of the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, in neighboring West Feliciana Parish.
