Beauregard Town has many outstanding 19th century turn-of-the-residential homes, and some of the best surviving examples of in East Baton Rouge Parish. Many of the homes are garnished with turned columns, brackets, barge boards, balustrades in various styles.

In 1799 Elias Beauregard conceived the idea of developing a planned center of town for Baton Rouge and began to subdivided her plantation, making Beauregard Town one of the oldest neigborhoods in Baton Rouge. At the time the area was the center of government for the Spanish province of West Florida.

Elias Beauregard, engaged the services of Arsene LaCarriere LaTour to plan Beauregard Town. LaTour was the French engineer who was later to become Andrew Jackson’s chief engineer for the battle of New Orleans. In 1806 LaTour presented to Elias Beauregard the plan for a classically laid out community.

Anxious to begin development of his town, Captain Beauregard organized a public land auction. This was done with the consent of Carlos de Grandpre, Governor of West Florida. On July 22, 1806, and lots were sold.

Beauregard Town first developed as Baton Rouge’s French community, with families names such as Favrot, DeGrandpre, Borbois, Heude, Granary, Arbour, Trahan, Hebert, Landry, Monget, Charotte, Templet, Legendre, Doiron, Monget and Dalcourt. Accordingly, French was the principle language in the old town. After the building of the Old State Capitol (1847-49), many other groups began to move to Beauregard Town, and by 1860 French was rarely heard on the streets of Beauregard Town.

When the Civil War came in 1861, there was great outpouring of patriotism for the southern cause. This, however, was short lived and in 1862 Beauregard Town, along with the rest of Baton Rouge, was occupied by Federal troops.

The area was bombarded by Union gunboats, and to prevent its recapture by Confederate troops, General Butler ordered the city destroyed. Fortunately, the order was never wholly carried out.

After the war, the economy of Beauregard Town was stagnant. But, the old economic base of the area being cotton and lumber remained and it slowly began to regenerate. By the late 19th century prosperity had been restored. Lumber and cotton were shipped via the warehouses in the western end of the district. It was probably this, more than anything else, that generated the richest residential redevelopment boom which peaked in Beauregard Town as it entered the 20th century.

Electricity made its appearance in the 1890’s and street paving began in 1901, though it was not finished until many decades later. Transportation from the residential area to the center of town was provided by train trolley lines which ran up and down Government Street. The trolley barns were also located on Government Street, but have since been demolished.

Slowly development in the city shifted away from Beauregard Town. In the 1960’s Government Street was redeveloped with large scale commercial properties which destroyed the core of old Beauregard Town, the residential area had fallen into decay and decline. However, since the early 1970’s Beauregard Town has undergone a revival of interest. Many of the old houses have been restored and converted for professional offices, and the area is rapidly becoming the fashionable historic area in the city.

In the Highland Rd/Terrace Ave neighborhood, 31 percent of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. An equal amount  of important occupational group in this neighborhood are executive, management, and professional occupations. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations at over 21 percent, and more than 17 percent in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

Culture is shared learning behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture, our learned behavior, comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand. Places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestry often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. 

In the Beauregard Town neighborhood of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Haitian at well over six percent. There are also a number of people of French or Irish ancestry at over three percent. Some of the residents are also of African ancestry at two percent, among others.

The most common language spoken in the Beauregard Town neighborhood is English, spoken by nearly 98 percent of households, while two percent speak French at home.
