Fun Facts for Future Renters

  • The city is known as the Strawberry Capital of the World. Residents will enjoy celebrating this title at the decades-old annual Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival. Regional foods like jambalaya and the Strawberry Royalty mark this fan-favorite event. 
  • Like much of southern Louisiana, Ponchatoula was mainly a timber town in the early 1800s. Eventually, they switched to commercial farming, and strawberries emerged as a profitable crop. Now tourism joins strawberry farming as a reason for the area's economic success.
  • Ponchatoula has a variety of features that townspeople love, from local businesses, antique shops and restaurants to more than a dozen festivals and museums.
  • The city started when a railroad surveyor saw promise in a dry patch of land near the lakes and railroad. It's named after the Ponchatoula River. Ponchatoula means "hanging hair," a Choctaw reference to Spanish moss.
