Madisonville, LA Real Estate

Madisonville LA Real Estate Overview

Madisonville is located on the historic Tchefuncte River on Louisiana Highway 22 between Mandeville and Ponchatoula, Louisiana. Founded in 1817, the town is one of the oldest communities in Louisiana and is the oldest permanent settlement in St. Tammany Parish.

The population of Madisonville is over 800 residents on the west bank of the Tchefuncte River about two miles north of Lake Pontchartrain. The Tchefuncte River's name is derived from the Choctaw word "Hachofakti", meaning chinquapin, which is a small oak tree. The current location of Madisonville began when the Spanish began to occupy the Florida Parishes. The earliest known settler was Juan Baham and his sons who came from Mobile, AL.

Nestled along the banks of the beautiful, deep waters of the Tchefuncte River lies the historic, nostalgic Town of Madisonville, Louisiana. Madisonville is located north of Lake Pontchartrain, approximately 40 miles from New Orleans. The town is easily accessible from the south via the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway and from the north taking I-12 to LA Highway 21 South to LA Highway 22 and the Tchefuncte River.

The town, originally named Coquille, was founded by Juan Baham around 1800. Later it was incorporated into the United States in 1810 and the name changed in honor of President James Madison. Retaining its character as a river town still today, it features marinas, recreational boating and maritime activities of all kinds. Overlooking the river are some of the area's finest restaurants, antique and specialty shops as well as a thriving business community.

Annually, Madisonville hosts thousands of visitors to the historic town who arrive to celebrate its' many festivals. The strong sense of historic preservation is shared by descendants of the original settlers and new residents alike. Restoration of many original homes continue as well as new construction in keeping with the character of the town.

The charm, hospitality and history make picturesque Madisonville a wonderful destination for a day, a week, or a lifetime.​​
