History

The region around the Mississippi, Amite and Comite rivers which would later become Baton Rouge has been inhabited for around 12,000 years, by a succession of different Muskogean cultures. These peoples were behind the vast trade networks that linked settlements in the region for nearly 1000 years before being disrupted by colonization. Baton Rouge was settled by the French in 1721, but the colony had a very turbulent history. It has been a part of France, Britain, Spain, the independent colony of Louisiana, the Republic of West Florida, the United States, the Confederacy, and finally the US again. Baton Rouge became the state’s capital in 1846 (the state legislature determined New Orleans to be too “sinful” to be a proper capital). Since the early 2000s, Baton Rouge has been one of the fastest growing cities in the south, and part of one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the US.

Location

Before you get excited and leap up to buy land in Louisiana, learn about where Baton Rouge is located and how that affects the local climate. It is found on either side of the Mississippi River around 79 miles from New Orleans and 56 miles from Lafayette. It is between 56 and 65 feet above sea level. The original city was built on the bluffs immediately north of the Mississippi Delta’s coastal plain. Baton Rouge enjoys a humid subtropical climate, with mild winters but hot, wet simmers. It snows only rarely, and then not much. There are plenty of Baton Rouge, LA mobile homes for sale because the bluffs offer protection from both flooding and the tornadoes which can ravage the lower land in the delta. Before you buy a mobile home in Baton Rouge, LA though, think about what kind of neighborhood you might want to live in. Are you looking for a quick drive to the commercial and economic district at the heart of Downtown? Is proximity to the best schools or to a particular university more important? Each of the following neighborhoods brings something unique to the table as well. Baton Rouge Neighborhoods Capital Heights The neighborhood of Capital Heights is not overflowing with Baton Rouge mobile homes for sale, but there are a few available for keen-eyed buyers. It is a popular place to live for artists, entrepreneurs, smaller families and hipsters of all varieties. Its dining game is on point, and it has plenty of hot music and performance venues. Lakeshore The Lakeshore neighborhood of Baton Rouge contains parts of LSU, as well as plenty of very high-end lakefront property. That might not sound like the place for buying a mobile home in Baton Rouge, LA, but putting a mobile home on the shore of a lake is a lot less expensive than normal development. Overall, it is a great place for growing families and people moving up in the world, as well as for LSU students and anyone who likes a night out in a college town. Hundred Oaks The Hundred oaks neighborhood is a great place to look for Baton Rouge mobile homes, as well as for single-family dwellings. It is full of large yards with shade trees, and it is definitely ‘HOA country’, for good or ill. Hundred Oaks sports several architectural styles from ‘mid-century modern’ to ‘timeless Mediterranean’, and even provides easy access to the Webb memorial Golf course. Finally, it has some of the best BBQ and Mexican restaurants in the city. The Garden District If you are buying a mobile home in Baton Rouge, you should definitely look in the Garden District. It also features plenty of small bungalows and historic homes and tall oak trees. Your neighbors would come from all walks of life – doctors, lawyers and other professionals, students and everything in between. The Garden District is known for its parks, as well as for its St. Patrick’s Day parades. Spanish Town Spanish Town in Baton Rouge is right up against the Mississippi River. It is a residential neighborhood, but with plenty of artis, business and civic organizations as well. It feels like a larger city than it is in Spanish town, but it really is small enough to be entirely walkable. The food trucks at Spanish Town Market and Matherne’s Market are a tourist attraction all by themselves, as are the Louisiana Art & Science Museum, the LSU Museum of Art and the free live music in the spring and fall months.
