† St. Martin Parish boundaries are somewhat unique, and are not contiguous. The parish consists of two areas, separated by Iberia Parish.

The primary occupation is farming, with sugar cane being the dominant crop. The largest cities are Breaux Bridge, with 7,281 residents, and St. Martinville, the parish seat, with 6,989 residents. 

The St. Martin Parish School District serves about 8,500 students. There are 17 public schools and 3 office complexes. There are also two Catholic schools, one Episcopal school, and one "Christian" school.

St. Martin Parish is the only parish in Louisiana that is geographically split into two separate areas. Upper St. Martin Parish contains 16 schools, while Lower St. Martin Parish contains only one school. 

The city of St. Martinville is historically the original settlement of French Acadian people in Louisiana when they were expelled from Nova Scotia by the British in 1769. Thus, St. Martin Parish is truly the "Birthplace of Acadiana".

Identifying School Lots 

Many properties were donated and in some instances sold for as little as $1. Lots for schools were usually either 1 arpent (192 feet by 192 feet) or 1 acre (208.71' x 208. 71'). Some were irregular in shape.  Schools were usually located next to bayous or major roads.  The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) planted pine trees and sycamore trees on school properties in the mid 1930's.

Bayou LaRompe School

There was once a public school in the LaRompe community. According to the minutes of school board meeting of September 4, 1930, the Rycade Oil Company tendered to the St. Martin School Board a school building to be used as a one teacher school to be operated at LaRompe for the school session of 1930-31.  The motion of board member Mr. Bienvenu and seconded by Mr. Guirard and was unanimously approved.  No other mention was ever made of the school either before or after this board meeting.  Was the school needed for the employees of Rycade Oil Company doing work in the area?  Were there other people living in the area besides fishermen and hunters? And where is LaRompe? 

     There is very limited material available but so far I have determined that Bayou LaRompe is located in the Atchafalaya basin south of Butte LaRose, east of Catahoula, and north of Lake Fausse Pointe in the vicinity of Lake Rycade. A Google search reveals little excepting a brief description and mention of a Bayou LaRompe Hunting Club and a suit filed in the Louisiana Western District Federal Court vs. Meche et. al. in 2005..

     In 1930 there was a voting precinct there so there must have been a few permanent residents in addition to fishermen, trappers and employees of Rycade Oil Company living in the area. A source tells me that many of the people of the LaRompe community lived in house boats.

      In 1922 the Rycade Oil Co. had completed a gravity survey of the famous Spindle Top salt dome in Jefferson County, Texas.   The company's seismograph crew equipped with a new type of foreign equipment was exploring for oil all along the gulf coast, so it is not surprising that they were doing seismic work in the Bayou LaRompe area in 1930.  Apparently when the company completed their seismic work, the Rycade Co. removed all their equipment and buildings so there was no justification to continue having a school in LaRompe beyond the one year the school was operated.
