Vinton The quaint city of Vinton, LA with a small population of nearly 3,200, was once traveled by civil war soldiers. The soldiers cut a road extending from an area in Vinton known as “Niblett’s Bluff” on the Sabine River to the city of Alexandria. Bret works of the Civil War were constructed at Niblett’s Bluff and remains of them can still be seen today. Army regiments of the Louisiana and Texas Confederacy were stationed near Vinton, Louisiana during the war.

The Civil War activities that took place in the Vinton, LA area have sparked quite an interest with area residents who hold re-enactments of battles often at the Nibletts Bluff area. Robert F. Evans of Vinton, Iowa, originally purchased the majority of the land, where the city currently lies. Mr. Evans sold the property to George Horridge who named the community Vinton after the hometown of its first owner.
