Has anyone ever told you
that there are great storytellers in the South?
Well, we like to think that there are especially colorful storytellers in Southwest Louisiana. There is so much to share from the legends of pirate Jean Lafitte and his buried treasure along the sandy shores of the lake to the timeless celebration of Mardi Gras. The rich history does not stop there. Let's not forget about the Michigan men coming this way for the lumber boom and the Lake Charles' style architecture due to carpenters building many of the historic homes with gingerbread filigree, landing Lake Charles on the National Register of Historic Places.
