What is Contraband Pointe and why this name?

Conceptual Rendering, Contraband PointeContraband Pointe is the name of the proposed mixed unit development that encompases 149 acres bordered by W. Prien Lake Road, Contraband Bayou, and Nelson Road, to the East and North of Prien Lake Plaza. Presently, approximately 134 acres remain available.

The name was selected because approximately 4000 feet of the property fronts the historic and beautiful Contraband Bayou.  This bayou, which runs through Lake Charles to Prien Lake, is so named because the famous Pirate Jean Lafitte was rumored to have buried treasures along its shores.
