Lake Charles Street Names & Other Memorabilia of the Lake City
Street names have become a living history in towns and cities across America, and Lake Charles is no exception. Pujo, Barbe, Bilbo, Drew, Gill, Goos, Kirby, Kirkman, Lyons, Moss, Ryan, and Shattuck are some of those street names which are also the names of pioneer families who settled in the southwestern corner of Louisiana.
Residents and visitors take those street names for ranted as they travel through the city for business or leisure, and seldom have the time or inclination to look behind the names. Now comes a compilation of those street names and the history they tell.
