Port Sulphur

Port Sulpher is a historically rich port town on the West Bank of the Mississippi River in Louisiana. Originating in the 1930's and developed largely by the Freeport Sulphur Company, the port was used primarily used to support its Lake Grande Ecaille sulphur mine, by providing a place for storage, refining, and transportation. Today the town offers a community of artists and musicians who are eager to invite visitors out for an evening of live music. For hiking, check out the Westlands Trail and Park, or enjoy an afternoon at the Jean Lafayette Historical Park and reserve. Tammany Place is another great option with some excellent vista points, and Abita Trace is popular among locals and visitors alike. Visit Port Sulpher and enjoy a rich history and welcoming culture.
