Evergreen, LA Website

Evergreen, Louisiana is a small town located in Avoyelles Parish. Chartered in 1869 and incorporated in 1871, the town is home to a little over 300 people, each having very close ties with each other. Evergreen is particularly known for its historical school, Evergreen Home Institute (1856), one of the first schools in Avoyelles Parish. The town bore such celebrities as football player Lionel Aldridge of the Green Bay Packers and San Diego Chargers. Evergreen was also home to E. B. “Ted” Robert, long-time dean of the LSU College of Human Sciences & Education, and grandfather of Dr. Nathan Roberts, the dean of the College of Education at UL Lafayette.

The following exhibit contains archived pages of the entire Evergreen website: www.evergreenla.org. The site, developed by UL Lafayette professor emeritus and Evergreen native Dr. Edmond Dugas, contains photographs, audiovisual items, and written histories and memories provided by the town's citizens. The aim of the site, as posted on the home page, is to "document the past, celebrate the present, and plan for the future while reliving memories and creating new ones."
