Greenwood is a town in southern Caddo Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population was 3,219 at the 2010 census, up from 2,458 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Shreveport-Bossier City Metropolitan Statistical Area.HistoryGreenwood was established in 1839. During the Civil War Battle of Mansfield in April 1864, Confederate wounded were treated at the Dunn House, now used as the headquarters of the local chamber of commerce. Several other historic houses in Greenwood, including the Trosper House, have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.Caddo Parish Sheriff J. Howell Flournoy, who served a record 26 years in office from 1940–1966, was born in Greenwood in 1891.On March 3, 1964, Owen D. Adams was elected as a Republican to the historically Democratic Caddo Parish Commission, then known as the police jury (equivalent to county commission in other states). Joining Adams on the police jury was a later state representative, B. F. O'Neal of Shreveport. In 1968, Adams was easily reelected to the police jury. He was the only member of his party to win an office in Caddo Parish that year. Adams, an engineer, served on the body for several terms before he resigned to relocate to Houston, Texas. At times, he was the only Republican on the body. He has since returned to Greenwood.
