According to the web-based Encyclopedia Louisiana, a family moved to the region in the 1870s to build a sawmill.
To power the mill, they built a water wheel, only to discover that the creek over which they had built it went dry every summer: the creek was a " dry prong ".
The mill was soon rebuilt over a nearby creek which flowed all year, but the name stuck.
The creek is now outside the city limits, on Hwy. 123.
John L. Landry is the current mayor of the village.
