Sunny Saturday * Louisiana

  Saturday is a Beautiful  day -so go out and enjoy it. This picture is from the Opelousas , La. Visitor Center. A great place to visit and see the vast history of the town. Don’t Miss the St. Landry Catholic Church – Cemetery Tours starting in October.  Lisa Opelousas takes its name from the Native American tribe Appalousa who had occupied the area before European contact. The first recorded European arrived in the Appalousa Territory in 1690. He was a French coureur de bois (trapper and hunter). French traders arrived later to trade with the Appalousa Indians. In 1719, the French sent the first military to the Territory, when Ensign Nicolas Chauvin de la Frénière and two others were sent to patrol the area and in 1720, the French established Opelousas Post as a major trading organization for the developing area. The French encouraged immigration to Opelousas Post before they ceded Louisiana to Spain in 1762 Opelousas is Louisiana’s third oldest city. The city served as a major trading post between New Orleans and Natchitoches in the 18th and 19th centuries. Traditionally an area of settlement by French Creoles and Acadians, Opelousas is the center of zydeco music. It celebrates its heritage at the Creole Heritage Folklife Center, one of the destinations on the new Louisiana African American Heritage Trail.
