I would like to extend an invitation to visit our community
of Jeanerette that is located in Iberia Parish and nestled
along the banks of the historic Bayou Teche. Jeanerette
is a community that is blessed with a history of hard
working, proud people that take pride in their community.
The community of Jeanerette and the area surrounding
it is also fortunate to have natural resources such
as oil, gas and salt. The rich soil of the area
produces many crops, but the main crop is sugar cane
and Jeanerette is known as the “Sugar City.
Our economy also benefits from petro chemical plants,
fabrication shops and a garment plant distribution center.
The Jeanerette area is truly a sportsman's paradise
with fresh water fishing and hunting such as Lake Fausse
Point, the Atchafalaya Basin and the Vermillion Bay
that offers salt water fishing, hunting and recreation.
The City has a very nice museum and four parks that
offer recreation and solitude to our area residents.
There are beautiful ante bellum homes in and around
our community. I encourage you to visit our community
to enjoy the many sites that offer so much history and
