In 1976, the Bicentennial of the United States triggered a cultural awareness throughout the country, including Louisiana. In an attempt to preserve and promote the Hungarian culture of the Albany, Louisiana area, some of the local Magyar descendants established the Árpádhon Hungarian Settlement Cultural Association (AHSCA). 

After more than forty years, this organization is still an integral and vibrant part of this rural community. The AHSCA sponsors yearly events that include the Hungarian Harvest Dance, which takes place on the first Saturday of every October. Hungarian Heritage Day, an event that usually takes place in May or June, provides the community with yet another opportunity to promote the rich history and culture of the area by honoring the Hungarian descendants who are seventy-five years of age and older.

The Arpadhon Hungarian Settlement Cultural Association is located in the former Erdey-Kiss Amvets Building due south of the center of a small town called Albany, Louisiana. The street address is 29025 Hwy. 43, Albany, Louisiana 70711. The mailing address is P.O. Box 10, Albany,Louisiana 70711.
