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.
