Humans first inhabited Metairie after the Mississippi River flowed through it, leaving behind natural levees—as well as Bayou Metairie—along Metairie Road. After the surrounding swampland was drained, other areas were developed, and in 2020, Metairie became the sixth-largest census designated place in the nation.
