Melville

This town’s history and commerce are tied to the Atchafalaya River. Historically, the town made its fortune in river commerce and then as a crossing point for the railroad. This history has been lovingly preserved and remnants and photos of those early days can be found at the town’s grocery and hardware store, Cannatella's. This store has been in business for over 100 years serving authentic Italian sausage and muffulettas, a famous Louisiana deli sandwich made with Sicilian sesame bread, an olive tapenade, and cured Italian meats.

Biker enthusiasts and fans of the film Easy Rider can get to Melville by way of scenic Highway 105, where the memorable last scene of the film took place.
