Crowley

Geolocation

Rice is the bedrock of the region's celebrated Cajun cuisine and no other Louisiana community is as intimately tied to the crop as Crowley. The swallow ponds and level prairies surrounding the city produce lots of crawfish too, but it was the turn-of-the-century rice mills that gave Crowley its identity and made possible today's impressive collection of historic structures. With its district lined with oaks and ornate Victorian homes, downtown Crowley is part of the state's Main Street Program. Many historic buildings still play prominent roles in the city's life. One such example is Miller Stadium, a 1940's-era ballpark and the Grand Opera House of the South that first opened in 1901 and was recently revived as an elegant space for world-class performers. Visitors can relive regional music history at the J.D. Miller Recording Studio Museum downtown or get a taste of prairie life at the Crystal Rice Heritage Farm.
