Tallulah was founded in 1857, and is now the parish seat for Madison Parish.
Largely agricultural, the area has cotton, soybeans, corn, rice and wheat fields. Tallulah is the site of one of the first agricultural experiment stations to use airplanes to control cotton pests. The original airport building (Scotts Field) still stands near Tallulah.
