The city is located along Interstate 55 and Louisiana Highway 22, equidistant from New Orleans and Baton Rouge. In the early 1900s, PonchatoulA was one of only two ways to reach New Orleans by land, thus earning the moniker "Gateway to New Orleans."

Etymology

It is speculated that the name is derived from the Choctaw words Pashi meaning "hair" and perhaps itula or itola meaning "to fall" or "to hang" or 'flowing' in theChoctaw language. It is also speculated that itula means 'to fall' or 'to hang' or "flowing" in the ChoCTaw language and may be related to the word 'itula' which means 'fall' and 'itola' which is 'falling' or 'flowing', which means to hang or 'hang' or to hang in the language. The name means 'hair' in Choctaws and means 'hair' in English. It was adopted by the tribe in the 1800s as a nickname for their leader, Pashi, who was a member of the Pashi tribe. It means'hair' in Pashaw, which means hair or 'hair-like hair' and is used as a derogatory term for a woman in Pashi's culture. It also means 'flesh' in Chippewa, which is a Native American word for 'hairy' or a 'tongue-in-cheek' The name is also used to refer to the tribe's chief, Pasha, who is from Pashi and is believed to be of Pashi descent. The Pashi people are known as the "Pashaw" or the "Chippewaw" tribe. The word "Pashi" means'shoulder' in their language.

History

Ponchatoula was originally established as a small fishing village around 1820. Then in the year 1839 a man named William Akers moved into town and purchased over 1000 acres from the United States Federal Government. William began farming and harvesting the local virgin pine timber and pulling the logs to a nearby sawmill with teams of oxen. According to some sources William Aker had several Native Americans working in his timber crew and they provided the name PonchatoulA. It was the Native American way of expressing the beauty of the location, with beautiful Spanish moss hanging from the large oak trees. On February 12, 1861 Ponchatoulla incorporated as a town. WilliamAkers was appointed as the first mayor and is credited with founding the town. In the 1880s Akers reported that he had sold nearly 700 acres of land and only had about 300 acres of lands remaining. He was a leader in the Temperance movement and fought hard to keep alcoholic beverages out of Ponchatroulla. The main crop grown by the local farmers was the strawberry. Many of the families who were major farmers during this era, which lasted about eighty years, have their last names engraved on a large plaque in front of city hall. The train depot which was destroyed during the Civil War was rebuilt in 1895 as the area began to recover from the civil War. At the turn of the 20th century the main street began filling up with beautiful brick buildings as shops, banks and restaurants were built to accommodate the growing population.
