1984Located on the first high bluffs rising above the Mississippi River, Baton Rouge derives its name from the French explorer d'Iberville's 1699 description of a red stick or pole dividing the hunting grounds of the Bayou Goula and Houmas Indians. The area has since generated a colorful history greatly influenced by its many and varied cultures.
