Legacy Walk, Town of Brusly History

1646- Back Brusly Oak Tree
The periodic overflows of the Mississippi River deposited nutrient rich soils that created the germination of the famous Brusly Oak Tree located at the intersection of present day LaBauve and West Main Streets. The tree stands at the 40 arpent line, measured west from the west bank of the Mississippi River. A popular gathering place in the early days of our community, the tree was estimated to have been 350 years old in 1976. Registered in the National Live Oak Society, the tree is determined to be the oldest live oak tree in West Baton Rouge. It has become a symbol of the Town of Brusly
