"Slidell was named for John..." Slidell Favorite Tip by BluecatCanoe

Slidell General: 1 reviews and 1 photos


Favorite thing: Slidell was named for John Slidell, Louisiana attorney, Senator, and Ambassador. It's history dates to the lumber and brick industry located there on the rail road line. Now it is more of a suburb of New Orleans than an industrial town, although St. Joe Brick Works is still in operation.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
