The modern-day state of Louisiana was inhabited by various Native American tribes as indicated through various archeological sites here. The site on Watson Brake, for instance, suggests there was life in this area during the Middle Archaic Period when the natives engaged in hunting and gathering and built elaborate earthen structures. The tribe of Poverty Point Culture would later inhabit this region, and they were closely followed by the Lake Cormorant and Tchefuncte cultures that transited to the Middle Woodland period.
Spanish conquistador Pánfilo de Narváez was the first European explorer to land here in 1528. Fourteen years later Hernando de Soto visited the upper side of the state where he encountered with the Tunica and Caddo Native American tribes. The French arrived at this area in the late 17th century and successfully laid claim to it. Robert Cavalier de La Salle named the new-found colony honoring Louis XIV, the king of France. In 1699, the first permanent settlement, Fort Maurepas, was established by a Canadian soldier which prompted the French to build their own; La Balise. The Louisiana Purchase made the part of this territory west of the Mississippi River fall under the jurisdiction of the United States government in 1803. The remaining part of the state was seized by James Madison in 1810 under the pretention that it was supposed to be originally included in the purchase. That occupied land technically remained in dispute with Spain until the Adams–Onís Treaty formalized the USA’s ownership claim in 1821.
Louisiana was admitted to the Union on April 30, 1812, with an estimated population of about 100,000 people making it the country’s 18th state. Shortly after that, the Florida Parishes of the previously seized Western Florida Territory was then annexed into the state. Nowadays, it covers an area of 51,843 square miles making it the 31st largest US state. With the nearly 5 million people calling it home, it now ranks as the 25th most populous US state. The state is known by various nicknames such as; the Child of the Mississippi, the Bayou State, the Pelican State, the Creole State, the Sportsman’s Paradise, the Boot, or the Sugar State. White, Gold, and Blue are its official colors, and it operates under the motto of Union, Justice, and Confidence.
The state is located in the southern part of the United States and shares its borders with several states such as; Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas and the Gulf of Mexico. This state is divided into the alluvial region and the uplands. The alluvial region is made up of beaches, coastal marshlands, low swamp lands and the Barrier Islands. The northern part of the state is mostly made of Highlands known for woodlands and prairie vegetation. There are many rivers within this state with the most notable ones being; the Mississippi, Sabine, Calcasieu, Vermillion, and Mermentau Rivers among many others. The state can attribute most of its climate to the Gulf of Mexico which touches the southern border and it is renowned for its toasty subtropical climate. The summers are hot and damp, winters are extremely tame and short, and rain is extremely frequent throughout the year.
The Pelican State has various beautiful preserves, parks, monuments and scenic places that attract many tourists annually. The Cane River Creole National Historical Park preserves the cultural landscape and the resources around the Cane River Lake and its immediate environment and includes the preserved Magnolia and Oakland Plantations.

The Atchafalaya National Heritage Area in Baton Rouge preserves the heritage of the ancient Native American tribes within this area. The Kisatchie National Forest is known for vegetation such as longleaf pines, flatwoods, and unique animal species such as the Louisiana black bear, pine snake, and pearlshell mussel among many others.
The Bayou State is also known for its various museums that preserve historical occurrences, the heritage and local culture. The Camp Moore Confederate Cemetery and Museum in Kentwood served as a training base for the Confederate Forces during the American Civil War.

Political Museum and Hall of Fame in Winnfield is made up of the literature of many politicians who have made a commendable contribution to this state and the country at large. The La.

The city of Baton Rouge serves as the capital and is nicknamed The Chemical City, B.R., or the Red Stick. This town has a robust and diversified economy which saw it listed among the top 10 places for young adults by the Portfolio Magazine as well as among the top 10 best places to start a new business in the U.S. by CNN. It is also a transportation hub with major highways such as I-10, I-12 and I-110 passing through it and the BTR Metropolitan Airport providing commercial flight services.

When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed or an Act of Sale to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. This state primarily follows the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) methodology when surveying real estate and has two initial starting points which are both the Louisiana Meridian and the Saint Helena Meridian. Since this area used to be part of a French territory, some of the state still uses a system based on French Arpent Land Grants too.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a lien theory state. This just means that the raw title of the property will remain as collateral until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender must go to court and start a judicial foreclosure which typically takes about 180 days to complete for the executory type so long as it remains uncontested. During the executory process, it relies upon the borrower’s pre-existing confession of judgment that was built into the original document. This confession, however, needs to be authenticated through the judicial process. Once everything is confirmed, the court will issue a final judgment of foreclosure and the property will either revert back to the bank or will be awarded to the highest bidder at the foreclosure auction. The laws that pertain to the La. foreclosure process are mostly found in LA Revised Statutes Title 10:9-629.
However, if you are a Louisianian landlord that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the L.R.S. of Ancillaries - Leases; RS 9:3201 to 9:3341 & Article 2668-2729 instead. It is important to note that this is a unique state in so far as unlike the rest of the United States, which typically follows British Common Law, this state primarily follows French common law instead.
Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the La. Real Estate Commission, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the Louisiana Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, have at least a GED, complete at least 90 hours of approved LA real estate courses, successfully pass the written state real estate exam, pass certain criminal background checks, and pay the various required licensing fees.
