Located in the northernmost portion of East Baton Rouge Parish, Zachary is a great place to call home. A sophisticated city with small-town charm, it has been nationally recognized as a great place for families. Originally fertile farm land, this city developed after a railroad and depot were built to service the growing industries in the area. Named for Darel Zachary — who owned the land until the early 1900s — the area is home to thriving new communities with great job and educational opportunities.
