§1949.  Old Perkins Road; designation

The purpose of this Part is to designate a part of the Old Perkins Road in East Baton Rouge Parish and in Ascension Parish as a historic road. It is the intention of the legislature to commemorate this area, once sought after by early landowners for its rich soil; intersected by historic Bayou Manchac, known in its early days as Iberville Bayou; developed as dairy land by the Kleinpeter family who continue to this day to operate the Kleinpeter Dairy on the same location; and original home to the Old Santa Maria Dairy developed on this picturesque Old Perkins Road which began as a main artery to provide a transportation route for early settlers to connect Ascension Parish to the village of Baton Rouge, and which has, with its splendorous flora, retained the beauty reminiscent of an earlier era.
