St. Landry Parish

With its dramatic history and diverse cultures, St. Landry Parish boasts une différence, which few, if any, places in America can claim today. The influences here—Native American, European, African, Acadian, American—have mixed and matched for over three centuries to produce the rich and colorful experience that is St. Landry Parish today. St. Landry Parish is the site of one of the oldest European settlements in Louisiana, le Poste des Opelousas, an administrative territory established by the French government in 1720.
