"Originally named Cote Gelee (frozen hills) because of its hilly ridge area and severe winter of 1784, Broussard was founded on 1884. It was named after Vaslin Broussard, a prominent local merchant, who formed the first Vigilante Committee when his store was robbed. Due to limited law enforcement, the Vigilante Committees were formed to protect local residents against organized groups of bandits. These bandits were ultimately defeated on September 3, 1859 by Major Aurelein Saint Julien and 700 of his men. "
