Gretna-Terrytown - vs. Stats

Gretna is named after Gretna Green, Scotland - a haven for young couples who seeking to elope. Gretna encapsulates this romantic history by offering Valentine's Day weddings at its Gretna Green Blacksmith Shop.

Gretna became home to many German immigrants as it welcomed them to the West Bank and their story, along with other earlier histories of migration into southeast Louisiana, is superbly told in the German American Cultural Center.

Gretna also served as an important railroad center. The oldest firehouse in America can be found in the city's historic area. The area's nineteenth century heyday is told in the The David Crockett Fire Company #1, a museum and a blacksmith shop. The same historic area is home to many restaurants and charming shops, and also the Jefferson Parish Courthouse--among other public and historical buildings.
