The City of Ponchatoula, originally a logging camp, had no name and only one road connected it with Wadesboro, the river shipping point. Hundreds of years ago, virgin pine, cypress, and oak trees were cut and hauled by ox teams to Wadesboro Rd. to be hand-hewn into pickets, shingles, barrel staves, sills, and mast poles for sailing vessels. As a result, homes built in Island Trace are surrounded by an abundance of tall pine trees stemming from this time. Ideally located in the heart of southeast Louisiana, the City of Ponchatoula is now known as America's Antique City.
