Henleyfield Community is a 38 square mile area located 75 minutes from New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It is 15 miles northwest of Picayune, MS and 12 miles southeast of Bogalusa, LA. A number of families residing in Henleyfield are descendents of settlers who arrived here 150 years ago. Growth in Henleyfield has come principally from migration from neighboring Parishes and from new employees of Stennis Space Center. No statistics are available to determine how many are full-time homeowners versus weekenders.
