Living in Houma, LA

The parish was founded by the Canadian settler Joseph Hache in 1823, soon after Louisiana became a state. After discovering that he had been granted the claim for the land in 1834, Hache sold it to a woman named Bridgette Belanger, who continued to expand the land for years. It wasn't until 1848, when Houma was first incorporated as a city, that more people began to migrate there to begin their lives.

The community is known today for its laid back attitude and as a hip spot for travelers. Many of the residents have kept the tradition of Houma going, choosing to be oystermen, fishermen, shrimpers, and crabbers, although some have adopted lifestyles in the oil and boating industries as well. Families thinking about relocating to Houma will be happy to discover that there are several local schools for children of all ages.
