Prairieville was a sleepy little bedroom suburb of Baton Rouge. Its name is derived from the once plentiful pastures and prairies that were visible from Highway 73 (Jefferson Hwy.) and Airline Highway, which is now covered with development. In recent years, Prairieville has benefited from migration out of Baton Rouge, with new residents particularly drawn to the area by its high-performing public schools

The sleepy little suburb in Ascension Parish is now home to 32,000 residents. With a median age of 35, most of the households are married and have children. Toddler age seems to be the greatest of the child population, with elementary school age coming in a close second. This explains the construction of the new primary schools!

Here are some of the things residents have to say about Prairieville:

"Great small town feel. The people are the best!"
"The schools and the community are second to none!"
"I love that we have amenities of a mid-sized city like shopping, restaurants, and parks, yet it has a small-town feeling."
"Close enough to Baton Rouge without having to be in Baton Rouge proper."
