Folsom was established in 1904 at the Alma Post Office which was located 12 miles north of Covington. George N. Fendlason, the founder, is said to have named the town after President Grover Cleveland's wife, Francis Folsom Cleveland. A depot was later built in 1905 and Folsom became a notable logging community. By 1908, the village had made such significant progress that a plan was set to begin its incorporation. Finally, on March 12, 1915, the Village of Folsom was incorporated into the State of Louisiana. In June of 1908 the St. Tammany Farmer, a local newspaper, reported that Folsom had several prosperous general merchandise stores, a drug store, a barbershop, a meat market, and what was said to be, "one of the best hotels you could find anywhere". Business was booming in this quiet and peaceful area. Soon, Folsom would mature into what is now referred to as "God's Country". *Source
