About Zachary

History [ edit ] The city of Zachary is named for former Louisiana Governor Henry L. Morehouse, who served from 1884 to 1888.[3] The community was first settled in the late 19th century by farmers and grew rapidly after the arrival of a railroad line in 1898. It was incorporated as a town on February 16, 1901,[4] but lost its charter four years later due to financial difficulties.[5][6] In 1905 it became an independent police jury district before being reincorporated as a town on April 15, 1908.[7][8][9] On March 29, 1926 Zachary was incorporated as a city[10], effective May 1st that year;[11]. Its population at that time stood at 2200 people (according to census figures). By 1930 this had grown more than threefold and reached 7500 residents. A decade later it doubled again with 16000 inhabitants recorded during 1940s census count (which also showed some 20000 additional people living within 10 miles radius from downtown).[12].
