Henderson, Louisiana

Henderson appeared geographically for the first time in print in the 1930’s, after the government ordered the construction of larger levees in the Atchafalaya Basin. Many of Henderson’s forefathers once lived in the Village of Atchafalaya.

Today, Henderson provides some of the finest opportunities for fresh water fishing in the south, offering anglers the opportunity to catch bass, sac-au-lait (crappie), bream and other species. Local cuisine is some of the finest Cajun cooking anywhere!
