The area where Metairie sits was originally settled by French settlers in the 1760’s, and during the 18th and 19th centuries the area remained a small sharecropping region. The area exploded during the 20th century thanks mainly to land prices plummeting, taxes plummeting and lots getting larger. In 2005 the area was hit by Hurricane Katrina, and while much of the area was flooded it was still used as a staging area for refugees leaving New Orleans.

During the summer months the temperatures typically hit around 95 degrees during the day, with lows often dropping to around 65 degrees overnight.
