Mandeville is a city located in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 10,489. Mandeville is located on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, across the lake from the city of New Orleans. Mandeville was listed as one of the Top 100 Places to Live on relocate-america.com in 2004 and 2005. Mandeville was recently hit by Hurricane Katrina and has been moderately damaged. The lakefront is currently under reconstruction as the storm surge from Lake Pontchartrain has extensively damaged the Lakefront. (wikipedia.org)
The area had long been agricultural land when the town of Mandeville was laid out in 1834 by developer Bernard Xavier de Marigny de Mandeville. In 1840 Mandeville was incorporated as a town. It became a popular summer destination for well-to-do New Orleanians wishing to escape the city's heat. In the mid 19th century regular daily steam-boat traffic between New Orleans and Mandeville began, and by the end of the 19th century it became a popular weekend destination of the New Orleans middle-class as well. Bands would play music on the ships going across the lake and at pavilions and dance-halls in Mandeville; Mandeville became one of the first places where the new jazz music was heard outside of New Orleans. Bunk Johnson, Buddy Petit, Papa Celestin, George Lewis, Kid Ory, Edmond Hall, Chester Zardis, and many other early jazz artists played in Mandeville regularly. (wikipedia.org)
