Brief Information About Avery Island

Avery Island is located in Iberia Parish, Louisiana. It is about three miles inland from Vermilion Bay, which in turn opens onto the Gulf of Mexico. While there is a small settlement here, it is primarily a salt dome best known as the source of Tabasco sauce. The island was named after the Avery family, who settled there in the 1830s.

Under the Avery/McIlhenny family's management, the islan has remained a natural paradise, inhabited by many animal species, as well as by exotic plants from throughout the world. It also has a bird sanctuary. The area was considerably damaged by the Hurricane Rita in 2005.
