Sunshine (Gummer’s Lane)

Parish: Iberville Parish

Residences along Gummer’s Lane were relocated after the LBC Baton Rouge oil terminal had an explosion that killed a worker. The residences have been removed. The Zion Rock church building and cemetery remain as the only remnant of the homes that once stood adjacent to the facility.

This atlas is a working document developed by community members in partnership with LEAN as they work toward resolving the challenges they face. This content is under construction and continues to be refined as new data is compiled and community situations evolve. Please excuse any errors or omissions. It is our hope that documentation of these struggles allows a greater opportunity to learn from them and, ultimately, to improve the lives of residents across Louisiana who face these significant challenges.
