Rayne and Trains. When the railroad came to the coastal prairie in the 1800s, our community was called Pouppeville. But we changed our name to Rayne, to honor the engineer who laid the tracks.

 

Rayne and frogs go way back, too. In the 1900s, three Parisians - Jacques Weil and his brothers, operated a profitable export business shipping our local delicacy - frog legs - to restaurants all over the country.

 

Rayne will always be unique. Check out St. Joseph Cemetery, listed in Ripley’s Believe it or Not! as the only cemetery in the United States facing north-south.

Rayne is still hopping. Come see for yourself!
