About the Felix LaBauve Chapter
Our chapter was organized September 25, 1975, in Walls, MS and reincorporated in Olive Branch in 2010. Col. Felix LaBauve, originally from Vauziers, France, came to DeSoto County in 1836. He was in the mercantile business and studied law, but was better known as the editor of The Phoenix, an early DeSoto County newspaper, now known as the DeSoto Times Today. He served in the Mississippi House of Representatives and Senate and as clerk of DeSoto County. Above is a photo of his home, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is now occupied as a private home.
Felix LaBauve Chapter meets four times a year, with one workshop for officers.
