Welcome to the City of Plaquemine
"The City of Hospitality"
Our City loves company and we are proud to offer you our hospitality. Plaquemine (an Indian word translated by the French means "Persimmon") serves as the parish seat of Iberville Parish, Louisiana. A short drive from Louisiana's State Capitol City - Baton Rouge, the City is bordered by the mighty Mississippi River, pre-historic Bayou Plaquemine and minutes away from the Atchafalaya Basin National Wildlife Refuge. Plaquemine is situated along Louisiana Highway One and is part of the Louisiana Scenic By-Ways and Great River Road Commission. Come enjoy our many attractions of the city and parish. Plaquemine is a Louisiana-designated Main Street City under the National Register of Historic Places. A charming and quaint bedroom community showcasing a variety of architectural features. Baton Rouge is only a 10 minute drive - Lafayette lies 45 miles to the west - New Orleans is 80 miles east of Plaquemine. May this and every other visit you make to Plaquemine be memorable!
