The St. John Baptist Church is a historic church located near White Castle, Louisiana. Built in the 1870s, in the predominantly African American neighborhood of Dorseyville, the whitewashed church features wooden frames and gable roofs. The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
Garyville may still not be incorporated as a city however there is no denying that this little census designated place is perhaps the most important in St. John the Baptist Parish because of the tax revenue it brings in through hectic industrial activity. An oil refinery built here in 1976 was among the first, while the San Francisco Plantation emerges the real winner from all the touristy attractions. Gothic architecture and painted ceilings define the old house whose guided tours are legendary.
