Zachary: Small Town, Big Possibilities

Zachary is a city in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana. With a population of approximately 15,000 residents, it is only a mere sixteen miles north of Baton Rouge proper. Despite its status as a small town, retail business continues to grow with “By Zachary First Initiative”, which was instituted in order to expand the city’s infrastructure through the encouragement of economic development. In addition, Zachary boasts a state-of-the-art medical facility, Lane Regional Medical Center, which was recently named as “One of the Best Places for Nurses to Work.” Aside from Zachary being an ideal place for entrepreneurs and medical personnel to settle down, the city is rich in history, offering a community museum within the Zachary Historical District. On Saturdays, a Farmers Market near the museum is available for residents who want to purchase local produce and other homemade items. If you feel like escaping small town life, Baton Rouge is nearby, offering endless entertainment options such as the Mall of Louisiana, Baton Rouge Zoo, and Dixie Landin’/Blue Bayou.
