Welcome to Baton Rouge
Baton Rouge, the capital city of Louisiana and the state’s second largest city, is located on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River. The estimated population of the city is just over two hundred and twenty-eight thousand and five hundred.
The city has a rich history that dates as far back as 12000-6500 BC with evidence of early inhabitants found along the Mississippi River. Fast-forward to 1699 when French explorer Sieur d’ lberville led a group of people up the Mississippi, were they found a red pole sticking out of the ground marking the boundary between two tribal hunting grounds. The explorers called it the French name le baton rouge, translating as the “red stick.”
Baton Rouge was later incorporated in 1817, eventually replacing New Orleans as the state capital in 1846. During the civil war economic growth in the city was effected dramatically. The only businesses that survived were those that had to do with the Confederate Army. In today’s economy, the city’s largest industry has to do with petrochemical production and manufacturing. ExonMobil’s Baton Rouge refinery is the fourth largest in the US, and the world’s tenth largest. The city’s government also employees many residents. Technology firms and research hospitals also have a strong economic presence in Baton Rouge.
