At the turn of the century, when our country was still young, Hungarians came to south Louisiana in search of a better life for themselves and their families. Land was purchased and cleared by hand. Through adversity and hardship, and a cash crop called strawberries, they carved out an existence and thrived. The result is Hungarian Settlement -- the largest rural Hungarian Settlement in the United States today.

It is located in the restored Hungarian Settlement school, and is dedicated to the historical preservation of the Hungarian community in Albany, Louisiana.
In the late 1800s, Hungarian settlers began to move from the harsh industrial environments of the North and East United States to a more desirable and familiar agricultural environment.
Our photo gallery features both historic and recent photos that illustrate the rich history and culture of South Louisiana’s Hungarian settlers. Also includes photos of our museum renovation.
