Grand Coteau is a town in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, United States. This town is part of Opelousas- Eunice Metropolitan Statistical Area and on Interstate 49 which is south of Opelousas.


In 1776, a land named as Prairie de Femmes was granted to the Louisiana government. It served as the stopping point of travelers of St. Martinville, Louisiana and Washington, Louisiana in the 19thcentury. The small town had a cobbler, blacksmith shop, two bakeries, millinery, post office and an inn.

However, in 1821, Mrs. Charles Smith, a widow in Opelousas, donated land, a building with two stories and funded the two nuns from St. Charles, Missouri. The nuns of Religious of the Sacred Heart founded a school and a covenant and named it Academy of the Sacred Heart.

On October 3, 1863, the Campaign of the Teche started and the Ninety-nine infantry regiment of Illinois fought several fights. Captain A.C. Matthews commanded his infantry arm for the Battle of Grand Coteau. In November 9 of the same year, they moved to New Orleans. Although the city was in the middle of the war, fortunately, no schools were damaged.

When the St. Charles College was built, Jesuits came in 1837. Surrounding facilities were developed and eventually it was called St. Charles Town and was later changed to Grand Coteau.

The population grew in this city because of Creole French, German, Acadian and Irish immigrants who came up. The town still preserves the Victorian architecture of the 19th century.

Residents who know the history of the origin of the simple town became the foundation of the city today. Despite the war, they still became an intact town for the future generation.

Grand Coteau makes you feel relaxed because of the beauty of the gardens and trees. This is surely a wonderful city to visit or in which to buy a home in Louisiana.
