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.
