“We love the community and wanted to add something that families could enjoy,” said David Gaines Jr., who owns the new Virginia Street Snowballs with his wife Brittany in Zachary’s historic district.

Thank you for picking up the inaugural issue of Porch & Parish, A Southern Lifestyle Journal highlighting all the reasons we are grateful to call Zachary and the surrounding areas home. Whether you are new in Zachary, or your family has been here for generations, there’s no doubt this town is growing by the day. It’s our goal to keep you informed of what businesses and developments are coming to Zachary, where the hot real estate deals can be found, and to introduce you to small business owners and volunteers who work daily to enrich our community. Our cover photo was taken at the newly opened Virginia Street Snowballs, a little gem doing its part to revive downtown Zachary. We sat down with Mayor David Amrhein to discuss downtown revitalization plans, and there is so much to look forward to! It’s our hope you are inspired to embrace all that this small-town life in South Louisiana has to offer.
