Getting to Know Mandeville
Mandeville is one of the oldest established localities in St. Tammany parish. Officially established as a town in 1840, the name "Mandeville" stems from Bernard de Marigny de Mandeville, who originally laid out the town.
However, what began as a humble agricultural settlement quickly became a sought-after summer destination for some of New Orleans' most prominent families. Sprawling estates blossomed along the edges of Lake Pontchartrain, nestled under the shade of Louisiana's giant live oaks.
The Old Mandeville Historic Association has worked tirelessly to preserve the architectural integrity of numerous landmarks such as the Jean Baptiste Lang House. Numerous houses throughout Mandeville have stood since the early 1800s. The historical elements of the town permeate the personalities of its people. Described as a "friendly French architectural town," Mandeville still embodies the authentic charm of its French ancestry.
However, new influences are readily recognizable throughout Mandeville. The Mandeville Trailhead along Tammany Trace serves as the town's epicenter for regularly hosted community markets, the Cultural Interpretive Center, a large amphitheater, and other community functions. The Pontchartrain Yacht Club, located on the inlet of Bayou Castine, provides a beautiful access point for residents to launch boats into the expansive waters of Lake Pontchartrain. Fontainebleau State Park is another portal into nature for Mandeville, offering stunning scenery and wildlife encounters. For a drive-by look at the true beauty and history of the town, take a drive down Lakeshore Drive, which borders Mandeville's historic district and the edge of Lake Pontchartrain and is spotted with boutiques and fine dining establishments to keep you entertained.
