Developer Vision

Lea Rutter, founder of Lea Rutter Homes, Inc, had a vision. He wanted to turn back the clock and bring to life a development that would capture the feeling of a cozy hometown, reminiscent of what used to exist in the Houma-Thibodaux area. He felt a calling to revive an old-fashioned way of living and renew the spirit of neighborliness that has sadly been lost in the hustle and bustle lifestyles of the 21 st century.

Lea envisions Sugar Mill Olde Towne as a community that forgoes a dependency on cars, creating a more wholesome and pedestrian-friendly way of life. He has created a utopia with tree-lined streets, wide sidewalks and historic architecture unique to South Louisiana. Sugar Mill Olde Towne will be a place that you can retreat to after a hectic day at work and really put family back at the forefront of your life.
