Later Rodessa “History”

Frog Level and Rodessa

A town meeting was called in the 1800's by Noah Tyson Sr., store owner, police juror and post master, to name their town. The frogs were hollering in a nearby pond. A man from Alabama jumped up and said, "Let's name it Frog Level" and so they did. On April 11, 1879, M.C. Spearman was appointed post master. Frog Level's name was changed to Rodessa in 1898 when the K.C.S. Railroad was built in this area. The president of the K.C.S named the town after his daughter, we're told. In July of 1935 the I.L. Young gas well was brought in by United Gas Company, opening one of Louisiana's major oil fields. As of January 1, 1973, 101,773,804 barrels of crude oil have been produced on the Louisiana side.
