Iberia was founded in 1827 and platted in 1832 by Frederick Meyers and Samuel Foster. It was once the home of Iberia College. The college's first president, the Rev. George A. Gordon, was an abolitionist and local Presbyterian minister who refused a presidential pardon granted by Abraham Lincoln when he was convicted for violating the Fugitive Slave Law. His actions made Iberia a recognizable and well-used location on the Underground Railroad.
