Before 1807, St. Charles Parish was known as the County of the German Coast of the Territory of Orleans.
On March 31, 1807, the elected legislative council divided the Territory of Orleans into nineteen civil parishes.
St. Charles Parish was one of the original 19 parishes created from this territory which makes it 200 years old.
