Friday Road Trip

Today the historic town of Washington,La.

Celebrating 300 Years of Rich History

The town of Washington, Louisiana’s third oldest settlement, is celebrating its tricentennial in 2020. Among the events planned are an antique car show, poster design contest, speaker series and high tea.

We invite you to visit our website frequently to see what’s in the works for our Tricentennial celebration.

With its rich agricultural region and proximity to Bayou Courtableu, the Town of Washington quickly became the 19th century’s largest steamboat port between New Orleans and St. Louis. Cotton, cattle, sugar and molasses were the primary exports of the day. This bustling trade was largely responsible for the wealth of antebellum plantation homes and Victorian architecture which give Washington its quaint character today. In fact, 80% of its buildings are of historic or architectural significance.
