To view the Covenants of our neighborhood, please view our Declaration of Charter.
Provenance is a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND).
Think of it as a special place like no other in Shreveport, Louisiana – a great neighborhood that takes the best planning from traditional communities and combines it with today’s conveniences and ecological principles. In a TND, the following are located within a 3 to 5 minute walk: parks, lakes, recreational areas, shops, restaurants, offices, civic buildings, and more. You can play, work, shop, exercise, dine, run errands or just relax — all within your own village.
Provenance is not one of those “overdeveloped” neighborhoods. We have preserved the natural beauty surrounding the community to provide a real sanctuary for our residents and enhance their quality of life.
Public and private spaces have equal importance in TND’s, creating a balanced community that serves the needs of a wide range of home and business owners and promotes relationship building among residents.
Sense of Community
Take part in a variety of community activities for families and single residents where you can get to know your neighbors. At Provenance, you can live in more than just a great home – you can live in a great neighborhood.

What’s in a name?
A name can say a lot about who we are and what we want to become. A literal translation of Provenance is “a preserved grove of trees.” Provenance – a Traditional Neighborhood Development we’d like for you to call “home”- is certainly that…and so much more.
Our vision is about creating the place where you can escape to experience a new way of living. Amid its natural beauty, you’ll find Provenance embodies a nostalgic quality that harkens back to a simpler time in America while offering all of the benefits of modern living. Provenance is the first neighborhood in Shreveport where a peaceful, park-like atmosphere blends harmoniously with conveniences like shops, restaurants, and professional offices with a variety of housing options. For most residents of Provenance, the town center is just a brief walk away from home.
Provenance is a new, pedestrian-friendly way of life – a sanctuary from everyday stresses. To us, that’s what the place you call “home” is all about.
What Best In American Living Looks Like
“Moving has its challenges, but for me it was so exciting. The reason was because I was finally purchasing a home in Provenance. After four years of frequently driving through the subdivision, I was led to a home on Sweetleaf Avenue. Through much prayer, I was sure the white Acadian cottage was My Provenance Home. I had totally been led to the perfect place for me. The design of the neighborhood had always drawn me to this beautiful planned community. One of my favorite Beach areas is 30 A, which has several planned communities. So now that I am here, I feel like I am on vacation everyday. The activities, pool, exercise room, restaurants, special green spaces, along with the beautiful homes, provide a very special atmosphere. The people in the community have been very welcoming. Truly, Provenance is a great place for families, couples or singles. I look forward to many years in this very special place.” Brenda Webb
“Like many retirees we wanted to down size our home. We toured other developments, but fell in love with the look and feel of Provenance. Each home was unique, and the parks and green spaces added to its charm. We enjoy being able to walk to the restaurants. The parks and pool area are great when our grandkids visit. The planned events throughout the year are fun and gives us the opportunity to get to know and spend time with our neighbors. We have not been disappointed in our decision to move and be a part of the Provenance community.”
“Not all neighborhoods are created equal. When we were shopping for our forever home, curb appeal was high on the list. The nostalgia we found in Provenance was a bonus! The pride in ownership that every resident shares is obvious to anyone who visits. We didn’t buy a home, we bought a lifestyle and we are living the dream every day.”
“In 2012 we decided to move from 17 acres in the country in order to be closer to our parents. We looked at many of the neighborhoods in the Shreveport/Bossier area. We kept coming back to Provenance because it had all the elements that were important to us. We wanted a sense of community, unique house plans, and the feel of living in the country within the city. We love calling Provenance home!”
“When we decided to make Shreveport our home, we knew that Provenance was the neighborhood for us. We love that we’ve had the opportunity to become friends with our neighbors through the array of community events. This place creates a sense of togetherness you can’t find anywhere else in Shreveport!”
The Priestley Family
“Upon deciding to return to Shreveport after my retirement, there was only one place I wanted to live – Provenance. At first it was the appeal of custom built homes with a quaint, yesteryear charm. Then, before long, I was sold. The sales manager took my hand and guided me through the process of deciding on a house and choosing interior finishes. My enthusiasm grew each day with the confidence and ease of working with the builders the superb quality of their construction, and the exciting realization I was becoming a homeowner in a smart, master planned community. I enjoy all the activities planned for the young and for active adults. Events like the Feast, Farmers Markets, and Wine Tastings draw friends and neighbors from all around, in a fun, inviting atmosphere. Quick access to I-49 makes trips to Bossier shops and Baton Rouge grand-daughters a breeze. In Provenance I feel safe, I feel connected, and I feel the hometown friendliness of staff and neighbors. Those close to me frequently hear me say, “I love my home and I love my Provenance!”
Mary Ann Bargmann
“We never imagined living here, or “south of town” – but when we took a tour of the house and the neighborhood, we completely thought differently about everything. No where else in this region is there a neighborhood your kids can walk to the park, walk to their friends house safely, or a neighborhood you know has your best interest. The community and events, it is all amazing. Our pets, kids, and family are very thankful we made the decision to invest in this great place.”
Billy and Kelly Hargrove
“Living in Provenance is a blessing I give thanks for every day. I am captivated by its charm, delighted with my neighbors, and engaged in its many activities. My husband and I feel Provenance is perfect for living our retirement dream!”
