Louisiana, Missouri is located on the banks of the Mississippi River 70 miles north of St. Louis on Route 79 and about 30 miles south of Hannibal. Louisiana’s first settler, John Bryson, built the first residence in 1817 and in 1818 sold some land to Samuel Caldwell and Joel Shaw; this area became the original plat of Louisiana which was mainly river-front property. Louisiana boasts over 3,000 residents, many of whom are descendants of the early settlers.
