A Brief History of Lafourche Parish

Lafourche Parish is one of the original Parishes of Louisiana. It was created in 1807 and was first known as Lafourche Interior Parish. In the beginning Lafourche Interior Parish encompassed, not only, current day Lafourche Parish, but also the area of Terrebonne Parish. In 1822 the western part of Lafourche Interior Parish became Terrebonne Parish. The dividing line between the two parishes was east of the current boundary dividing the parishes. In the year 1853, Lafourche Interior Parish became Lafourche Parish, as it is known today. The parish seat of Lafourche is the city of Thibodaux.
