Spring has sprung, which means it's festival season in New Orleans! With so many things going on, we'll be featuring periodic blog posts with highlights of the city's happenings to keep you informed
Welcome to Belle Chasse!
We’re glad you found our little home on the web! Our office is located on the "West Bank" of the Mississippi River, in a quaint little town called Belle Chasse (French for “beautiful hunting”). Some say that it was named for its plentiful wildlife, others say it was named after Colonel Joseph D. Bellechasse who lived in New Orleans in the late 18th century. Belle Chasse is one of the oldest developed areas on the West Bank and is only a stone’s throw (about 20 minutes driving) across the Mississippi River from downtown New Orleans and the world-famous French Quarter!
Located in Plaquemines Parish, Belle Chasse has a high demand for housing, primarily due to low property taxes, low crime rates, and an excellent school system. According to www.niche.com, Belle Chasse Academy ranked #2 as the best public school in Louisiana, out of 764 schools! This demand has created new and sought-after neighborhoods such as Pleasant Ridge, Springwood, The Parks of Plaquemines, and others! Not to mention, Belle Chasse is only a short drive from Venice, LA, which offers some of the best hunting and fishing in the world!
Since 1957, Belle Chasse has been home to the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, which houses many military families stationed in the area. Belle Chasse also features the Louisiana Medal of Honor Park and Museum, and historic Fort Jackson, which is a National Historic Landmark! The Plaquemines Parish Fair and Orange Festival has been held since 1947, and is one of the most anticipated events of the year!
