City Guide: Baton Rouge

     Baton Rouge translates as Red Stick.

     The name dates back from 1699 when French explorer D'Iberville discovered a red stick in the area of the Mississippi River. It served as a bench-mark for the hunting grounds between Houma and Bayou Goula tribals.

     In the late 15th century the term ''red stick'' also referred to aggressive native American settlements in the East Coast of the Mississippi. They launched hostile actions against peaceful "white stick" settlements that led to tribal wars. As soon as Europeans came to the area, Baton Rouge saw the rule of France, Britain, Spain and the United States. Soon it became Louisiana's state capital in 1849 and James Dakin, famous architect was hired to design the cityscape therefore the biggest part of modern architecture in Baton Lounge was drafted by his hand.

Attractions include;

- African American Museum offers extensive collection of historical relics of African American ethnicity

- Louisiana Art and Science Museum, a location for art works by contemporary artists

- Louisiana State Capitol, a symbol of the city designed by James Dakin

- Louisiana State Museum, located in a few paces from the State Capitol and features exhibits related to Louisiana culture

- Old State Capitol, the 19th century castle, but today a museum of the city's history

     In 300 years once small settlement transformed into the fifth largest port city in America. Today its port on the Mississippi River receives ocean-going ships to transfer cargo like grain, crude, cars, containers at Baton Rouge. It is even ranked as one of the top 20 cities in North America for economic strength by Brookings, public policy organization.

     In addition, Baton Rouge is more than business, but educational center. It is home to the Louisiana State University and Southern University that is regarded as the nation's largest African-American university. This led to the city having 50 percent African American residents from 229,553-strong population.

     What makes Baton Rouge the hottest destination in the South is more than people and historical heritage, but its full range of entertainments.
