Prior to being known as the lumber and shipbuilding capital in West Calcasieu Parish, Westlake was known as “Rio Hondo” (No Man’s Land) to cattle rustlers, pirates and renegades. In the early 1800’s settlers came to the area and purchased land. The first official recorded land transaction was made on November 1, 1824 which was the purchase of 640 acres that included part of the area now known as Westlake, Louisiana. A post office was established around 1883, which lead to the eventual establishment of the Westlake area. A few years later the town became known as Westlake, Louisiana. The city was officially incorporated in 1945.
