Area code 225
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
225 is the North American telephone area code for part of southern Louisiana, including the entire nine-parish Baton Rouge
Metropolitan Area. The area code was Louisiana's third area code, and the first new area code in the state in 41 years. Area
code 225 split from area code 504 during 1998/99. 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.
The area code has become part of the regional identity for the Baton Rouge metropolitan area, to the extent that there is a
local news magazine named  magazine published by Louisiana Business Inc.
