Area Code 225

225 is the area code for southern Louisiana, including the nine-parish Baton Rouge metropolitan area. 225 was created in the late 1990s, when area code 504 was split for the second time. The numbers 2-2-5 correspond on the alpha-numeric keyboard to the letters C-A-J, a nod to the area’s Cajun heritage.
