Louisiana’s first Continuing Care Retirement Community

St. James Place is sponsored by the St. James Episcopal Church

In the late 1970s, a group of forward-thinking parishioners of St. James Episcopal Church in downtown Baton Rouge envisioned a full-service retirement community that would be the first choice for active, successful aging in the Gulf South region. St. James Place opened its doors in 1983 to become the first retirement community in the state of Louisiana.

Situated on a beautiful stretch of 52-acres once known as the Duplantier Plantation, the community takes pride in providing the perfect setting to Live Life Well. Over the years we’ve added new services and amenities.

We’re committed to providing a high-quality lifestyle and a lifetime of enrichment opportunities. St. James Place remains sponsored by St. James Episcopal Church and governed by a Board of Directors comprised of business leaders, Episcopal clergy, and community civic leaders. It is guided by a professional staff and Resident Council, which meets monthly to represent the ideas, opinions, compliments, and concerns of all residents.

We’ve experienced a multimillion dollar expansion and renovation and we’ve put campuswide generators in place to ensure that care and services go uninterrupted in the event of a power outage.
