Chalmette, La. - St. Bernard will soon be home to the first-ever sugar museum. St. Bernard President Dave Peralta has given the green light to the Office of Tourism to begin planning for the future site of the St. Bernard Parish Sugar Museum. The museum will be located in the Old Arabi Jail at 220 Hernandez Street in the Historic District.
The Sugar Museum exhibit will showcase the history and culture sugar has created for this area. The museum will be promoted regionally to tell the story of St. Bernard's Sugar Trail and parish officials hope it will be another attraction to encourage people to visit the Parish.
