About Our Community

South Louisiana is a location that's easy to call home. Located right in the heart and soul of Cajun Country, we have a  Joie de Vivre  (Joy of Life) like no other. From world famous Cajun cuisine to unmistakable Cajun and Zydeco music and the Arts, you are sure to experience Southern Hospitality at its finest. Opelousas is Louisiana's third-oldest city and is part of the state's Main Street Program with its downtown cluster of antique shops, boutiques and restaurants serving Cajun cuisine. Visitors can see antebellum, Victorian and early 20th-century buildings, including the "Hidden Capital of Louisiana," which served as the governor's mansion during the Civil War. A trip to the historic Le Vieux Village, with its 19th-century cottages, Orphan Train exhibit and Jim Bowie display about the famous one-time Opelousas resident, adds historical context to the Cajun and Creole folkways still in such vibrant evidence around the city today, while the Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino is among the city's newest attractions.
