Geographically nestled between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Ascension Parish makes it simple for you to experience the best southern Louisiana has to offer. If you have not yet made the move to our safe, family-oriented community, you owe it to yourself to see why our thriving parish is such a great place to call home.
Aside from the local attractions, events and festivals that are as diverse as our people, the main contributors to our success as the fastest-growing community in the state reside in our top-rated public school system, our stable economy and our ever-growing business market.
Over the last decade, our growth has shown no sign of decline, and in an effort to accommodate the population influx, there have been numerous new developments and subdivisions built to meet the rising demand. We are very proud of the work provided from our local government, developers, builders, financial organizations and other real-estate professionals for helping to make the Ascension housing market such as success.
From historical towns and plantation homes to golf communities and waterfront properties, Ascension Parish is sure to have the home to fit your lifestyle. Welcome to the neighborhood!
