American Press Sesquicentennial Calendars

American Press 2017 Sesquicentennial Calendars are now available for a $5 donation at 1911 Historic City Hall, 1001 Ryan Street.

American Press Sesquicentennial Calendars

Plans are underway now for an April unearthing of a time capsule that was buried during the City’s Centennial Celebration held in 1967. A lakefront community celebration and opening of a special Lake Charles historical exhibit are also being planned for the fall.

The calendars have been donated to the City by the American Press who produced and printed the calendar last fall. The first commemorative item of the sesquicentennial celebration, the calendar celebrates Lake Charles then and now through a series of photo comparisons. Each month of the calendar also features tidbits of Lake Charles history.
