The City of Mandeville was founded by Benard Xavier de Marigny de Mandeville in 1834 as a working plantation and summer vacation destination for New Orleans socialites.

By 1900 there was an established steamboat service crossing Lake Pontchartrain making Mandeville a weekend trip for New Orleans socially elite. In 1956 the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway opened for vehicular traffic and the City of Mandeville began to grow dramatically.

The City of Mandeville is a modest 6.8 square miles with a 2010 population estimate of 11,580 individuals. The population density is 1,725.4 per square mile.

On February 7, 2013 the Mandeville City Council created a Historic Preservation District in order to preserve and protect historic structures and neighborhoods.

Attractions include bird sanctuaries and a “rail trail” known as the Tammany Trace. This former Illinois Central Rail Road Corridor is a 31 mile asphalt hiking, cycling, and equestrian trail that features a trailhead farmers market.

Lake Pontchartrain meets Mandeville at Lakeshore Drive to form a linear park that features beautiful moss-draped live oak trees, historic homes, and excellent local restaurants.
