Over Bayou Lacassine, there is an old wooden bridge originally constricted around 1895 as a draw bridge used for cattle herding between Calcasieu and Jeff Davis Parishes. In 1920, the bridge was rebuilt; again as a draw bridge. In 1950, the bridge was damaged (likely by flood waters) and it was then repaired in 1951; by 1955 the draw bridge portion was disabled.
To date, the bridge continues to connect the two parishes. If you like cypress trees, Spanish moss, beautiful bayous and one of a kind wooden historical bridges this is a must see when visiting SW Louisiana! It is easy to see why it has become a favorite spot for Family, Special Event and Wedding Photographers to capture images of their clients.
Ever so often we like to take a drive out there, just to enjoy the peacefulness of nature.
I hope you have enjoyed this scenic view of one of SW Louisiana’s special historical spots.
Thanks for visiting, see you again soon!
