From the skyscrapers of downtown Baton Rouge, you can look out on a clear day and see the mighty Mississippi River Bridge with traffic flowing East and West. At dusk, the beautiful sunset colors of gold and orange and blue can be seen from very far away. Across the Mississippi river, lights are visable one by one with night time approaching. Don't you wonder what is on the other side.
Well, wonder no more. The town of Port Allen is finally awake from its hibernation. Port Allen is located in the tiny but growing parish of West Baton Rouge. This parish is best known for agriculture and petrochemical plants. The developers had a vision for this parish . Subdivisions started growing by leeps and bounds. New businesses and retail establishments are being built along Hwy 1 and Hwy 415.
People are finding out about the quality of schools, low crime rate, low land cost. They are also finding out about the easy commute to Baton Rouge. No wonder, we are on the map.
Surprise of all, we are becoming home to the Louisiana's largest film studio on the riverfront north of Port Allen. Can you imagine shopping and running into your favorite movie star, in disguise of course.
More of the movie studio and other developments on the next blog of West Baton Rouge Parish is on the map!
