History of Mandeville
The town of Mandeville was formed in 1834 by Bernard Xavier de Marigny de Mandeville better known by his more shortened name of Bernard de Marigny. Mandeville quickly became a summer retreat for wealthy New Orleanians who wanted a rural setting to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
As tourist travel demands continued to spike and eventually a steamboat began making the daily pilgrimage across Lake Pontchartrain between New Orleans and Mandeville. These ships became well known for fantastic jazz shows and Mandeville itself turned into a very well known location to listen to early Jazz artists like Buddy Petit, Bunk Johnson, and many others.
As demand for easy access to Mandeville and “the northshore” continued to escalate the state of Louisiana finally began work on the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway one side of which was completed in 1956. The second span was opened in 1969 and the opening of the two created tremendous growth in the Mandeville economy and real estate market.
