As part of the New Orleans-Metairie metro area, Jefferson Parish is a busy hub for those living and working in and around the parish. Interestingly, it may be confused with Jefferson Davis Parish in Louisiana, but the two are separate and Jefferson Parish was named after President Thomas Jefferson rather than the Confederate President.
Jefferson Parish has a population of around 432,000 after the last US census. This area was once larger than it is today because of the expansion of New Orleans which brought in Orleans Parish for many of the smaller communities. However, the population continued to grow during the mid-20th century. It became a hub for the entire metro area, which is the role it plays today. Several prominent cities are part of this parish and contribute to the economy and culture of the New Orleans area. Premier Honda takes care of all the residents of Jefferson Parish for their new and used car needs.
Slidell was established in the mid-1880s as a railroad town for the New Orleans and Northeastern Railroad, which linked New Orleans to Meridian, Mississippi. In the early 1910s, Slidell became a crossroads for those traveling to nearby states because of the development of several major highways, including Interstate 10. In the 1960s, NASA built a computer center on one of the main streets in town, which led to a massive increase in population and subsequent status as a suburb of New Orleans. Premier Honda is the Slidell Honda dealership with great deals and exceptional customer service.
Part of the New Orleans metro area, Metairie is a census-designated place with a population of around 138,000, which makes it the largest community in the parish. The French were the first settlers in the area, which is why the city has a French name, meaning tenant farm. The city has been hit with several major hurricanes over the last 100 years but has managed to recover and thrive. Old Metairie is an upscale part of the city and one of the oldest areas. Fat City is known for its successful restaurant scene. Metairie is also popular for a Mardi Gras that is family friendly. Metairie residents can trust Premier Honda for their next set of wheels.
Marrero is another census-designated place located in Jefferson Parish. The community was named for a state politician in the mid-1800s. It sits south of New Orleans and encompasses eight square miles. Marrero has a population of around 33,000 as of the 2010 US Census. Premier Honda is proud to be the local Marrero Honda dealership for residents looking for brand-new and used vehicles.
While Metairie is the largest CDP in Jefferson Parish, Kenner is the largest city with a population of 66,702. Originally, the town consisted of three plantation homes and land that were purchased by the Kenners. This area is rich in history with major growth beginning in the 1950s when the swampland located north of the city was drained. Premier Honda is proud to serve the residents of Kenner for all their new and used car needs.
