The Old Arabi Sugar Museum


220 Hernandez, Arabi, Louisiana

The history of St. Bernard Parish – it’s land, waterways, and commerce – is intertwined with the story of sugar. Whether through the cultivation of cane or the sweet smells emanating from Domino’s Chalmette refinery, from the first years after the formation of the Parish in 1779 all the way up to the present day, sugar has been a vital component in the cultural fabric of St. Bernard Parish. The Old Arabi Sugar Museum explores St. Bernard’s fundamental role in the development of the sugar industry, as well as its impact on Louisiana, the United States, and the world. The museum is going to grow and deepen, so we welcome your ideas, your knowledge, and your artifacts. Enjoy the sweet story of sugar!
