More About
Morgan City, LA

About Morgan CityThe Chitimacha Indians were the first to settle in the area, but the character of the region was shaped by the 18th-century Acadian refugees from Canada. Better known as Cajuns, their culture is evident in the food, language, music and architecture found in this region. Two scenic highways, US 90 and SR 70, intersect at Morgan City.

On the banks of the Atchafalaya River, Morgan City once called itself the Jumbo Shrimp Capital of the World. But since offshore oil was discovered in 1947, the petroleum industry has far surpassed the shrimp market in economic importance. Morgan City annually celebrates both industries with its Louisiana Shrimp and Petroleum Festival during Labor Day weekend.
