LOUISIANA CREOLE COMMUNITIES

Initial research into the communities and founding families of the Creole culture identified almost 40 areas that met the description of a Creole Colony. Basically these are areas that are known for its Creole history. Through the promotion of this initial listing, many areas have been added from community representatives who call, or called, these areas “home”. Many of these colonies are no longer in existence or have merged with other areas, but are still deserving of recognition. To this end we have come up with a listing now termed “Registered Creole Colonies” that currently number 113.
