USDA Boundary Details

Tangipahoa Parish is located in the southeastern part of Louisiana in the United States. Established on March 6, 1869, it was named after the Tangipahoa River, which, in turn, derived its name from the Native American word "tangi" (meaning ear of corn) and "pa" (meaning to go). The Native American name refers to the fact that this river separates the Tangipahoa and Bayou Pigeon tribes.

Originally populated by several indigenous tribes, the area witnessed significant European contact and settlement during the 18th and 19th centuries, primarily due to the Colonial Era French and Spanish in the region. In 1810, the area participated in the West Florida Rebellion, which aimed to establish an independent Republic of West Florida from Spanish rule. The region was eventually annexed by the United States later that same year.

During the American Civil War, the region continued to develop amidst the struggle between the Union and Confederacy. After the war concluded, Tangipahoa Parish was created from parts of St. Helena, Washington, Livingston, and St. Tammany Parishes. Amite serves as the parish seat, while Hammond stands as the largest city in the parish.

Tangipahoa Parish is known for its fertile soil, resulting in an agricultural history that produced large quantities of strawberries. In fact, one fun fact about Tangipahoa Parish is that it became known as the "Strawberry Capital of the World" during the early 1900s. The Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival held annually in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, remains a major event celebrating the parish's agricultural legacy.
