n behalf of our more than 100,000 residents, it is my distinct pleasure to bring you greetings and offer a few insights into what so many of us believe is the best place in the world to call home.

O

Newcomers are drawn to Ascension Parish and so many life-long residents such as myself decide to stay for the very same reasons. Our rich culture, friendly people, fantastic cuisine and excellent employment opportunities have made Ascension Parish the fastest-growing parish in Louisiana for the past 10 years. In fact, we’ve seen a 40 percent growth during that time which keeps us in the top 100 fastest-growing parishes and counties in the nation. We are proud of our historic roots. As one of 19 parishes of the Territory of Orleans, Ascension Parish originated in 1807. Our riverbanks are home to nearly a dozen Antebellum plantation homes and Donaldsonville, the parish seat, once served as the capital of Louisiana. From its inception, Ascension Parish has been home to an industrious and welcoming people. We are hard workers; our parish has some two dozen chemical plants and refineries. In addition, we are proud to offer numerous service industries and some of the best shopping areas in South Louisiana. But, we also know how to have a good time. Our festivals are legendary. We welcome visitors to the Jambalaya Festival in Gonzales, as well as the Juneteenth and Sunshine Festivals in Donaldsonville.

ver growing, but rooted in its rural heritage, Ascension Parish is a diverse mixture of peoples each accounting for its distinct culture.

E

Now in its third century, a span of time that predates Louisiana’s statehood, Ascension Parish’s long and distinguished history is a great source of pride for residents both new and old.

In addition to public entities, the Ascension Chamber of Commerce and the parish’s Economic Development Corporation are instrumental in working with citizens and local government to maximize opportunities for growth. These organizations and many others are committed to bringing an even better quality of life to Ascension Parish, while being ever mindful of its cherished past.

Ascension Parish’s foundation is dug deep in the rich soil of its riverbanks, soil that gave rise to sugar plantations up and down the Mississippi River. Sugar helped build this parish and tribute to this prized commodity remains part of Ascension’s collective consciousness. The parish’s current economic success is a mixture of modern petrochemical industries (more than two dozen plants call Ascension home), along with agriculture and tourism in the form of visitors from around the world who flock to see our plantation homes. As the fastest-growing parish in Louisiana for four years running, Ascension draws new residents and visitors alike with its natural attractions, ideal location and warm, friendly people. The bayou country affords sightseeing opportunities of natural splendor and wildlife rarely seen anywhere else. People also frequent the parish to experience our famous festivals and distinctive cuisine that provides a true taste of Louisiana. Residents of Ascension parish enjoy public services made possible by citizens who reflect our parish’s strong work ethic. At the heart of those services is one of Louisiana’s very best public school systems, along with an array of private and parochial schools. Ascension’s neighborhoods are tightly knit communities, ranging from urban to rural, providing a sense of safety and comfort in an ever-changing world.
