Lisbon is a village in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population was 185 at the 2010 census. Lisbon is located east of the parish seat of Homer.
In the late 19th century Lisbon was the location of the former Lisbon Academy, attended for a brief time by T. H. Harris, state superintendent of education from 1908 to 1940. Lisbon was the birthplace of another Louisiana educator, John Sparks Patton, a member of the Louisiana Public Service Commission from 1939 to 1944 who twice lost races for state superintendent to T. H. Harris. He is remembered as the first advocate of taxpayer-funded school textbooks.
Still another Louisiana educator, E. R. Minchew, was an assistant principal and coach at the former Lisbon High School from 1930 to 1932, when he began a 32-year stint as principal of Castor High School in Castor, a village in Bienville Parish.
