Manchac was raided in February 1778 by American forces under the command of James Willing—see related articles Continental Marines and USS Morris (1778).Manchac is part of the Hammond Micropolitan Statistical Area. The name "Manchac" derives from a Choctaw expression for "rear entrance" (i.e., to Lake Pontchartrain). "Akers" is a namesake of Willie Akers, a telegraph operator on the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad who in 1857 began operating Manchac's first post office.Manchac was one of the originally planned stations along the railroad, generally at intervals of 10 miles. Akers' father, William Akers, was the first mayor of Ponchatoula the station to the north of Manchac.

It is home to the ruins of one of the five lighthouses set up for Lake Pontchartrain, the Pass Manchac Light. The existing lighthouse (the fourth on the site) was completed in 1857. It was automated in 1941, and the dwelling was razed in 1952; the Coast Guard decommissioned the light and abandoned the property in 1987.Manchac is known for fishing, duck hunting, seafood restaurants like Middendorf's, and swamp tours.
