Tangipahoa Parish

Tangipahoa Parish, located near the center of the Florida Parishes, is a  composite of the habitats typical of the lower areas east of the Mississippi River. The name, Tangipahoa, means "ear of corn" or "those who gather corn" which referred to the subtribe of the Eclipse. These Native Americans inhabited the area when  Bienville and Iberville arrived to colonize Louisiana. Since Tangipahoa Parish's founding, the population has steadily increased.
