It's called Brule rd. and it's in Labadieville. It is the street on the side of St. Philomenia Church in Labadieville. If coming from Thibodaux it is the street before the church. If coming from Napoleonville it is the street after the church. Good Luck I hope that this help. Stacey

A "Brule" or "Brulie" or "Brusle" or "Brusly" or "Bruly" -- it seems no one agrees on the spelling, is simply a French term for an area that has been "cleared" or literally "burned." A "Brûlé" is usually a term used for an area in the rear of a plantation or town. Many of the towns in South Louisiana were settled along Rivers & Bayous...for examples the Mississippi River & Bayou Lafourche. The main plantation buildings or towns would have been closest to the river or bayou and the "Brûlé" furthest away. So in the rear of the town (southwest) is the Brule Labadie area. It is in the general vicinity (if you look on a map) at the junction of Hwy 1010 & Hwy 398. So the "Brule Road" referred to in the other post leads to this area. There are several examples of other Brules in Assumption Parish...."Brule St. Vincent", "Brule Maurin" & "Bruly St. Martin" are other examples.
