St. Tammany Parish history:
The area that is now St. Tammany Parish was first explored in 1699 by a French-Canadian, Pierre Le Moyne Iberville. He was also the first European to view Lake Pontchartrain. The Parish was named for Delaware Indian Chief, Tamenand. The area remained largely unsettled until 1785 when settlers from Georgia and the Carolinas came into the territory. Settlements were formed along the local rivers and bayous.
