Background

RIVER RIDGE/JEFFERSON/HARAHAN

River Ridge can be found in southeastern Louisiana and is classified under Jefferson Parish and the New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner Metro Area. Easily accessible from the Jefferson Highway, the area was officially named River Ridge in 1974, mainly to avoid confusion and set it apart from the nearby communities of Harahan, Kenner, and Metairie.

The suburb occupies a total area of 2.82 square miles, most of which had many sugar plantations during the 19th century. Today, River Ridge is a place of historical interest and relevance due to its colonial and agricultural past.
