French immigrants settled the area in 1832. A pure strain of the French language was spoken here until the 1960's. Since St. Mary's Catholic Church was built in 1870, it has been the site of the annual Frenchville Picnic. The first white burial in the county (1771) was French seaman Tohas Auxe, who died enroute from Canada to New Orleans. The stone was discovered on a local farm in 1896.
