Bob Acres is a small unincorporated community in rural Iberia Parish, Louisiana, United States. It was established as a train station by American actor Joseph Jefferson, who owned nearby Orange Island (now Jefferson Island, Louisiana), an inland salt dome that only appeared to be an island from a distance.
