Village of Grosse Tete

The village was originally incorporated in 1906 but dissolved a few years later. It was re-incorporated in 1952 and includes a two-mile stretch of homes and businesses along Bayou Grosse Tete. Legend has it that the bayou’s name, which means “big head” in French, was derived from a big-headed Choctaw Indian who lived and hunted in the area when it was first settled by Acadians. The Village of Grosse Tete is a beautiful community of majestic live oaks, green pastures with rustic fences, and the grace of the bayou.

Perhaps the most familiar municipality, but also the smallest of the Parish's municipalities, Grosse Tete is located in Northern Iberville. The village is named after Bayou Grosse Tete – the bayou that winds through much of the parish. While it is a small community, it has been progressive in providing services for its residents. Today, the economy is farm-based with cattle grazing and sugar cane fields dotting much of the landscape.
