In the early 1800s Gretna was comprised of three settlements, Gretna, Mechanickham, and McDonoghville. In 1884 Gretna became a parish seat, then in 1913, the three settlements became the City of Gretna. The city’s old town has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1985. Points of interest in the community include the Gretna Green Blacksmith Shop, Mel Ott Park, the David Crockett Firehouse, the “Red Caboose,” the Gretna Historical Society Complex, and the German-American Cultural Center.
