Brusly is a quiet south Louisiana community nestled on the west bank of the Mississippi River, just five miles south of downtown Baton Rouge. Situated in the heart of one of the greatest agricultural regions in America and in close proximity to several historically significant antebellum homes, Brusly was founded in 1901 and retains its small town charm and a deeply rooted history. Originally named Brusly Landing for its role as a frequent riverboat stop, the community developed around farming – of sugarcane in particular – and more recently, the state’s burgeoning petrochemical industry.
Brusly’s location makes it an attractive home base for exploring the colorful sights and cultural attractions of south Louisiana. From hunting, fishing and golf, to sporting events at LSU or the year-round slate of festivals and celebrations – not to mention the region’s world renowned culinary and musical offerings – there’s a bounty of recreational and entertainment opportunities within a short drive of home.
Along with Brusly Elementary, which is conveniently located adjacent to the Stonewall Plantation TND, three additional schools serve the educational needs of area children from pre-K through high school. All are part of the West Baton Rouge Parish School System. These include Brusly High School, Brusly Middle School and Lukeville Upper Elementary.
