Broussard

Geolocation

Broussard is in the heart of Cajun Country, as evidenced by the 14 percent of residents who still speak French. There’s also its claim to original Cajun ancestry: the town’s history dates to circa 1876, when namesake Valsin Broussard, a descendant of one of the first 200 Acadians to move to Louisiana, built his house downtown. The city is today home to at least 15 turn-of-the-century Queen Anne Revival residences, all within blocks of the Broussard house. After you check out downtown Broussard, be sure to stop by the Zoo of Acadiana: Zoosiana as well as Parish Brewing Company, which offers free brewery tours on Saturday afternoons.
