Parish Government History

The website of the St. Tammany Parish Government has a rather extensive history of the parish posted on its history webpage, located at THIS LINK.

It offers a wealth of historical information, based in part on research done by the Southeastern Louisiana University Center for Southeast Studies. There are separate sections on pre-1810 history, key businesses, prominent families, important individuals, and what the parish calls "cultural icons," individuals who are known far and beyond St. Tammany's borders.

Follow the link above to see the vast variety of information. You will have to click on the various section tabs to access drop down windows with the different kinds of information. I will try to place some of the key information on this website for reference and educational purposes.
