Named after the gift of a Bible in 1869, Sarepta is a small town located in the northwest region of Louisiana in Webster Parish. Only stretching one-mile North, one-mile South, one-mile East, and one-mile West, It holds a population of just shy of 1,000 people. This little town is the home of Country Music singer, Trace Adkins, and his mother, Peggy, is none other than the little town's Mayor. She has served in the Mayoral seat for the past 6 years (2013-2019). Sarepta's greatest asset is the people who live there, for they are "warm, kind, and willing to help a neighbor out at all times."
