Metairie

New Orleans Suburbia

Head West on Interstate 10 and about 10minutes from Downtown New Orleans, you will find yourself in a Suburb of New Orleans, Metairie, and on into Kenner. Metairie, which means, small tenet farm in French that paid the landlord with the share of its produce, was just that in its early development. Today, Veterans Memorial Hwy is a main thoroughfare that connects Metairie and Kenner to the foot of Orleans Parish. Metairie and Kenner are home to many ranch style homes. In the 1920s, a streetcar that ran along what is now Metairie Road, brought development to the area. It wasnt until the 1940s that the development spread onward throughout Metairie and into Kenner.
