DeQuincy, Louisiana A Small Town With A Big Heart!

DeQuincy, Louisiana in Calcasieu Parish


DeQuincy, Louisiana is located about 20 miles North of Lake Charles and Sulphur, Louisiana.  This community may be small  with a population of a little over 3,000 residents however,  every community always has real estate for sale!  That was my purpose for recently driving up to DeQuincy.  The cute cottage home I  recently listed for sale in DeQuincy at 533 Corley St. has gone under contract and I traveled to DeQuincy to meet my buyers for their inspection over the weekend.

533 Corley

Many residents who live in DeQuincy work in neighboring cities (Lake Charles-DeRidder, Louisiana) and because Southwest Louisiana closely borders Texas, there are residents who commute to Orange and Port Arthur, Texas to work.  Many just choose to live in the City of DeQuincy because it is a small city with charm much like Main Street USA across our nation.


As a matter of fact DeQuincy kind of reminds me of the of the TV Show Mayberry RFD and I keep expecting to see characters like Sheriff Taylor, Barney, Goober, Floyd the Barber, and Aunt Bee when I visit! (I know that they exist somewhere in the City of DeQuincy) The hot spot in DeQuincy isn’t the  Diner like featured in Mayberry, but rather the Dairy Queen!

DeQuincy, Louisiana is probably best known for the DeQuincy Railroad Museum.  The City of DeQuincy has a big event in the Spring during the month of April where they celebrate Railroad Days. (thats the topic of another Blog post!)


If you are searching for homes in the DeQuincy Louisiana or surrounding Southwest Louisiana area, give me call, MARILYN BOUDREAUX 337 499 9592. I LIST and SELL real estate in Calcasieu, Beauregard, Cameron and Allen Parishes!

As a matter of fact I currently have 3.25 Acres of Vacant Land listed for sale on Henry Robertson Road in DeQuincy, Louisiana.
