1. Morrisonville Marker
On March 13, 1889, Rev. Robert Morrison established the Nazarene Baptist Church one and one half miles north of this site on Australia Point where the community of Morrisonville developed. Due to levee setbacks in 1921 residents relocated to Graceville, named after the land seller, and in 1931 moved to Mayflower Plantation. Dow Chemical relocated the community to Morrisonville Estates in Iberville Parish and Morrisonville Acres in West Baton Rouge Parish in 1990. Today, only the cemeteries remain.
Erected 2004 by The Dow Chemical Company - Louisiana Operations.
