The rich, fertile farmland that once was covered with cotton and corn crops is now the site of contemporary schools, banking institutions, a general hospital and other health providers, churches, and restaurants, bridging the span from Tallulahs self-sufficient plantations of yesteryear to todays changing economy and the 21st century lifestyle.
In the early years, construction of a railroad through the city contributed significantly to the areas growth and prosperity, making Tallulah the hub of commerce for the entire Louisiana Delta area. Just a few miles away, ferry boat transportation across the Mississippi River provided the Tallulah area with convenient access for marketing the agricultural products of its many farms and plantations to other parts of the United States.
U. S. Highway 80, the main thoroughfare through Tallulah for decades, provided highway transportation across the Mississippi River via a bridge. A separate bridge accommodated railway transportation. Today, the four-lane I-20 and a newer, wider bridge allow for increased traffic flow across the Mississippi.
