Erath, Louisiana

Erath, Louisiana is our hometown. Founded in 1899, it serves as a home for 2,100 residents, seven miles east of Abbeville and 26 miles south of Lafayette, Louisiana.

Each year, Erath hosts a fun-filled Fourth of July Celebration with a Cajun twist, which Good Morning, America called "one of most interesting events in America."
