Land sold to Red River Bank for branch

Red River Bank, which announced plans for a branch at Acadian-Perkins Plaza Monday, has purchased the land for the location.

The bank paid $901,000 for the half-acre site at the corner of Acadian Thruway and Perkins Road, according to documents filed Monday afternoon with the East Baton Rouge Clerk of Court’s Office. Laurance and June McDonald Brooks were the sellers.

Red River Bank plans to open its sixth local branch on the site sometime in 2015.
