Southwest Louisiana has so much to offer, our thriving business community is on the upswing. With more than 180 billion dollars in proposed capital investments by local industries our economic future is on the rise. Each of the communities surround Lake Charles offers an atmosphere as unique as its history. I have provided links below to the city websites where you will find a wealth of information on the community, businesses, visitors information, city contacts and public works.
Iowa, a quiet little town in Southwest Louisiana, provides the security and charm of the rural atmosphere people dream of moving to and retiring in. A town of 3,337 people, Iowa is located in Calcasieu Parish at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Hwy 383. This US crossroad provides travelers access to routes north and south, as well as east and west. Our Southwest Louisiana town is located between the cities of Lake Charles and Jennings and is only 50 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. Iowa is surrounded by lakes and refuges for year-round hunting and fishing opportunities!
The colorful history of this region is filled with stories of the early Midwestern settlers from Iowa, Kansas and Illinois, to the French Canadians (Cajuns), to Jean Lafitte’s pirates along the Old Spanish Trail. The railroad that cut through this country brought settlers who were lured to the prairie land for rice farming, cattle raising and later, oil fields. Today, oil continues to be a vital part of our economy, as is farming and cattle.
