Erath, Louisiana, is a residential community of approximately 2,100 residents located in Vermilion Parish, about 7 miles east of Abbeville and 26 miles south of Lafayette, Louisiana.

Founded in 1899, we are a small community rich in Acadian culture. We take pride in our community and hold dear our family.
