Jacques Weil and brothers, Edmond and Gontran, came to Rayne from Paris in 1901 and established a mercantile business that shipped frogs to restaurants and universities across the country. The business became a landmark in the area, expanding the unique frogging industry into gigantic proportions - exporting as much as 10,000 pounds of frog legs in a week.
