About: new iberia, louisiana

New Iberia is located in southern Louisiana, just 30 miles south of Lafayette. It was named "Nueva Iberia" by Spanish settlers in honor of the Iberian Peninsula, the peninsula where Spain is located. When the land was controlled by the French it was called "Nouvelle Iberie" and after the Louisiana Purchase, Americans called it "New Town." However, when the town was incorporated in 1847, perhaps as a way to preserve its history, the town was named New Iberia.
