Iberville Parish

Iberville Parish is one of the oldest parishes in Louisiana.
The Parish Seat is Plaquemine

Iberville county was first established in 1804, and when the territory of Louisiana was divided up into 19 parishes in January 1807, the parish of Iberville county was made to include Iberville County and the Galveztown settlement.  A Census in 1769 showed a population of 376.

It is named for Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville, who founded the French colony of Louisiana.  
Point Pleasant became the seat of government in 1807 and remained such until 1842 when it was changed to Plaquemine.
St. Gabriel on the east side of the Mississippi River, was the largest colony in the district.
