PORT ALLEN – There’s an undeniable charm about a small town that just brings people together. It’s the people, the community and the shared feeling of a village.

In Port Allen, there’s a special place that epitomizes this sentiment: Jack’s Place.

Celebrating its centennial this weekend, Jack’s Place holds a significant place in the hearts of locals. Jerry Saia, the third-generation owner, recounts his family’s journey from Sicily by way of Houma and Labadieville in 1919.  Their family had many businesses in the area. His grandfather, the bar’s namesake, opened Jack’s Bar when he was about 19 years old.

If the walls of Jack’s Place could talk, you’d hear stories going back to Prohibition, World War II, the Great Depression and many more events both large and small, that have spanned the past century.
