Harvey


Harvey is located on the West Bank of the Mississippi River and on the Harvey Canal which is a vital shipping route to the Gulf of Mexico. It is bordered to the east by Gretna, to the west by Marrero. The original owner of the land was Jean-Baptiste d'Estrehan de Beaupre, royal treasurer and comptroller for the French Louisiana colony. Harvey was originally a company town called Cosmopolite City, developed by Joseph Hale Harvey. During this time, Joseph Harvey would rename it for his family's surname.

Harvey features numerous hotels, restaurants, shopping, a casino and lots of family-friendly activities!
