History

Negreet was founded in 1822 and families began settling in sizeable numbers as the completion of nearby Fort Jesup brought the once lawless "Neutral Strip" under control.[1]

The community flourished with farms and plantations until the Civil War, which devastated the area and displaced many of its residents.[2]

Today, Negreet is a small, dispersed community.

Education

Public schools in Sabine Parish are operated by the Sabine Parish School Board. The community of Negreet is zoned to Negreet High School [1] (Grades PK-12).
