Where Life is Sweeter
Youngsville came to be in the early 1800’s. A small group of French Acadian farmers figured this community, “Royville” would be a good place to settle and raise their crops and families. They figured right. By 1863, the settlement had grown large enough to attain the lofty status of ‘village’. When the village was incorporated in 1908, the name was changed to Youngsville.
In 1983, the village of Youngsville was declared a town and by 1990, the secret was out. In 2005, Youngsville was the state’s fastest growing ‘town.’ It was then that Youngsville was elevated to the rank of ‘city’ and has, ever since, been the fastest growing municipality in that category as well. Youngsville homes are still within a rural city that allows residents to enjoy a small town atmosphere with big city amenities nearby.

While the numbers speak of results, the ‘reasons’ for those results are even more impressive.
The community of Sugar Mill Pond is located in Youngsville, and is a planned waterside town located in Youngsville. The developers of the Village of River Ranch in Lafayette planned this 509 acre development with tree-lined streets, common areas and amenities such as restaurants, an amphitheater, coffee shops, and more where neighbors may interact and promote a sense of community. Sugar Mill Pond is a charming little city within a city. There is a 10-acre lake near the entrance of the subdivision, and a town center, which serves as a gathering place for residents.
