Near the communities of Convent and Geismar, on the edge of the Mississippi River, is the community of Donaldsonville. With a city slogan of “Respecting Our Past and Building Our Future,” Donaldsonville is moving forward and is a great place to call home!

Donaldsonville real estate ranges from small single-family homes in rural neighborhood settings to mid-range homes and large New Orleans style grand architectural homes on sprawling properties. This community is also known for having the quality of simpler times. There are sections of town near Railroad Avenue that are lined with refurbished and modernized shotgun style homes.

There is much to see in the small town of Donaldsonville. There are over 50 blocks of Historic District with buildings dating back to 1865 and older! Here you’ll find the Historic Donaldsonville Museum occupying a converted department store, a community gem filled with donated items from local citizens. Don’t forget to stop by local artisan Alvin Batiste’s gallery to admire or purchase original pieces of Louisiana inspired creations. You’re also just a short trip away from the Elm Hall Wildlife Management Area and the Madewood Plantation House.

For those wanting a one-of-a-kind dining experience, Lafitte’s Landing at BitterSweet Plantation is the creation of Chef John Folse who is a noted Louisiana celebrity. This exclusive eatery is only open to guests with 6 or more in their party who are willing to pay top dollar for the experience. If casual dining is what you seek, stop into Grapevine Café and Gallery. While here try Chef Cynthia Schneider’s James Beard award-winning white chocolate bread pudding.
