Welcome to Ara ...
Although we found mention of Ara during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Ara was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.
While we are confident that Ara was located in Iberia Parish, we don't know its actual location within the parish.
We've added Ara to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Ara - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Ara, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Ara might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Ara would be found within the (337) area code.
