Metairie (MET-r-ee) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, United States, and is part of the New Orleans metropolitan area. With a population of 143,507 in 2020, Metairie is the largest community in Jefferson parish and was (as of 2010) the fifth-largest CDP in the United States. It is an unincorporated area that would have been Louisiana's fourth-largest city behind Shreveport if incorporated. In the 1720s French settlers became the first Europeans to settle the area known then as Tchoupitoulas and now as Metairi Ridge, a natural levee formed by an ancient branch of the Mississippi River. After the Civil War, the majority of the community's inhabitants were sharecroppers until urbanization started in the 1910s. The 1947 Fort Lauderdale hurricane, with winds of 125 mph (201 km/h), directly hit Metairia. Hurricane Betsy, a Category Three storm, hit the area in 1965, causing extensive wind damage and moderate flooding. In 1995 the May 8th 1995 Louisiana flood, which dumped upwards of 20 inches (510 mm) of rain into MetairIE in a twelve-hour period, also flooded some parts of the region, especially areas south and west of Metairies. In 1989, a Metairier district elected white supremacist David Duke to the Louisiana state legislature for a single term. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina caused a new migration from Orleans Parish, because housing was needed to replace what had been destroyed in the flooding of the city.

Etymology

Métairie (French: [meti]) is the French term for a small tenant farm which paid the landlord with a share of the produce. In the 1760s many of the original French farmers were tenants. After the Civil War, the majority of the community's inhabitants were sharecroppers until urbanization started in the 1910s. The term is also known as sharecropping (in French, métayage) and share-cropping in the U.S. It is a contraction of the word "metairie" (metair) which means "to share" or "to rent" in French. The French word for sharecropper is "métair" (métay) and the English word "sharecropper" (sharecropping) means "sharing" in English, "to lease" and "share" in Spanish, "share cropping" in Portuguese, and "sharingcropping" with a landlord in France in the 1770s and 1780s. In English, the term "sharecrop" is used to refer to the practice of renting out a farm to a landlord for a large percentage of the farm's produce, or "share-croppers" (in English, sharecrops) in the 1800s and early 1900s.
