Church Point, Acadia, Louisiana, USA

I will, however, post some related links.

About Church Point

(from the page)

Church Point, with a population of about 4,800 people, is a small rural town with a long tradition. The first homesteads were established by the D’Aigle brothers in 1843. The Jesuit missionaries constructed the first chapel on the banks of a bend in Bayou Plaquemine, a location that became identified as “La Chapelle de la pointe de Plaquemine Brulee”–or, in the anglicized version, Church Point (translated back into French: Pointe de l’Eglise). Although the area is dotted with oil wells, Church Point is primarily a town whose economy centers on farming: rice, soybeans, corn, milo, sugar cane, and crawfish. While looking toward a bright future, Church Point is also a town that believes in preserving its heritage…”
