With the war’s conclusion, the region’s social, cultural, economic, and political landscapes changed radically.

By the 1750s, the German Coast had expanded territorially and demographically to such an extent as to warrant establishment of a new church parish to complement St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, which had been erected in 1722 near present-day Destrehan to serve the German immigrants.

Increased population pressure caused a corresponding increase in local land values.

Over the course of the summer, an epidemic decimated the Attakapas Acadian encampments, forcing the surviving exiles to disperse. One group of Acadians migrated across the Atchafalaya basin, arriving in present St. James Parish in mid-September 1765.
