Alexandria, LA

Alexandria, the seat of Rapides Parish, is located on the Red River in central Louisiana. This 200-year-old city is situated in the middle of the Kisatchie National Forest where outdoor activities are enjoyed year-round. During the American Civil War, Alexandria was occupied twice by Union forces and burned in 1864.

With a low cost of living, a favorable tax structure, and moderate winter climate, Alexandria has become a desirable destination for retirees. Still, the median age of the city is less than 36. The city is home to more than 46,000 residents. Median income and estimated home values are below the state average.


Some of the leading industries in the city are health and social services, retail trade, education, recreation, entertainment, arts, and accommodation and food services.

The top employers of Alexandria are Rapides Parish School Board, Pinecrest State School, CHRISTUS St. Frances Cabrini Hospital, Rapides Regional Medical Center and MARTCO/Roy O Martin Lumber. Some major companies with facilities in the Alexandria area include Procter & Gamble, Union Tank Car and International Paper.

The Port of Alexandria covers 125 acres and is a major shipping point for military equipment.


Alexandria accommodates around 20,000 houses, of which 18,000 are occupied. More than half of occupied homes are owner-occupied.

Some of the city's distinct residential neighborhoods include:



At the northernmost reaches of South Louisiana's Cajun and Creole traditions, Alexandria shares the Native American, African-American, French, and Spanish contributions that shaped much of Louisiana. This diverse mixture of influences has shaped the city's past and forms a foundation for cultural activities throughout the region. Mardi Gras is celebrated each year with family-friendly parades. Cajun dancing is a popular pastime, and the city boasts both a Museum of Art and the Rapides Symphony Orchestra.
