Tribe, meaning probably, “Corncob Gatherers,” or “Corncob People” were Indians who settled along the Tangipahoa River.
Our community is located in the Northern part of the Parish, approximately eight miles from the Mississippi state line; Highway 51 and Illinois Central Railroad runs parallel in the Village. If traveling North or South, Interstate 55 is approximately one-half mile away from the Village.
As mayor, I’m standing on the shoulders of great men and women who have paved the way for me and others in the community.
Our monthly council meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM. You are welcome to attend. I encourage you to contact me or the council with suggestions, ideas, questions and concerns.
