St. Francisville is a town in and the parish seat of West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population was 1,712 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Statistical Area.GeographySt. Francisville is located at. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 1.8 square miles (4.7 kmĀ²), all land.HistoryThe town of St. Francisville was established in 1809, and a number of historic structures from that period still exist. Called "the town two miles long and two yards wide" because it was developed atop a narrow ridge overlooking the Mississippi River, it was the commercial and cultural center of the surrounding plantation country. Below St. Francisville's bluffs, another early settlement called Bayou Sara had been established in the early 1790s, and was at one time the largest antebellum Mississippi River port between New Orleans and Memphis. Destroyed by repeated flooding and fires, nothing exists of Bayou Sara today, but a few of its structures were hauled up the hill into St. Francisville in the 1920s.Years of contention as to exactly where the eastern boundary of the 1803 Louisiana Purchase was -- depending on which treaty was cited; as France, Great Britain, and Spain shifted the territory amongst themselves during the second half of the 18th century -- allowed Spain to continue to claim territory on the eastern side of the Mississippi River (after Britain ceded West Florida in 1783, at the end of the American Revolutionary War), which region is today called the Florida Parishes.
