There’s good reason that the town of Melville celebrates the catfish festival every October. Much of the town’s history and commerce are tied to the Atchafalaya River. Historically, the town made its fortune in river commerce and then as a crossing point for the railroad.

Documents also indicate that Melville had several fish docks and ice houses. By the turn of the century, 50 barrels of fish were being shipped from Melville each day.

  1. Beautiful! And I had to laugh at myself… when I saw the first picture you posted here with the bridge I thought “Oh, she lives in my town!” because we have a bridge just like that which crosses the Missouri river. But no, different town. Still pretty though! Thanks for sharing!
