Brusly, Louisiana , West Baton Rouge Parish ~ Cinclare Sugar Mill was built from 1897 to 1906. It was a self-sufficient "company town" mill with its own currency, plantation store, farm animals, staff housing, and railroad. The entire sugar mill complex was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

 

The period 1880 to 1920 saw rampant industrial growth in Louisiana, including large-scale centralized sugar processing. Cinclare was one of the longest surviving complexes that illustrated the important role sugar played in the economy of the state's southern region.

Note from Juli:  This photo was taken during the height of sugar cane harvesting season with the mill running at full capacity, even at night which gives the scene a charming warmth from the night lighting, especially unique is the smoke coming out of the towering chimney stack, and on the far right a haze of steam from boiling the cane juice. On the far left can be seen the leftover shredded cane husks being carried outside on a conveyor belt and dropped into a large pile. Husks can be seen blowing in the wind from the brisk autumn night. Unharvested sugar cane can be seen in the foreground. An intriguing halo of a tall cross shape is seen in the sky next to the chimney.
