Baton Rouge

The capital of Louisiana since 1849, Baton Rouge ("Red Stick") was established in 1699 by the French to control access to the Mississippi. The area retains its distinct Creole and Cajun heritage. The city is the second largest in Louisana and has two capitol buildings. The cityscape is dominated by the huge oil refineries along the banks of the Mississippi River.
