History of Lakeview
Located just north of Mid City, Lakeview was once a swampland at the south shore of Lake Ponchatrain until French explorers settled at the mouth of Bayou St. John. Following this settlement, the Spanish revamped the area building a brick wall around the entrance. “The Spanish government sold the bulk of the lakefront to a Scotsman named Alexander Milne. Milne owned the land from the entrance of the New Basin Canal, all the way to the Rigolets Pass. He began to develop the area around Elysian Fields Avenue in what is now Gentilly. That area became known as Milneburg (GoNola.com)”.
