Madisonville is a tiny town located in St. Tammany Parish in southeast Louisiana near New Orleans. As of the 2000 census, the population was 677 residents. Madisonville is one of the oldest communities in Louisiana. It was originally named Cokie from the French word Coquille, meaning shell. The name was changed in 1811 to honor President James Madison. This historic little town has eight sites listed on the National Historic Register, including the Madisonville Lighthouse, which was built in 1838. The land route to the lighthouse was destroyed in 1965 by Hurricane Betsy and has been accessible only by boat ever since. Madisonville is also home to Fairview-Riverside State Park, located just east of town. This park surrounds the Otis House, which is an early Victorian home originally built in the 1880s and renovated in the 1930s. Tours of the home are offered and camping is available at the park. Madisonville hosts the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum which puts on the Wooden Boat Festival each fall, an event that draws 40,000 visitors annually. Other special events in Madisonville include The Mardi Gras Boat Parade and the New Years Eve Crew of Lights.
