Calcasieu Parish

Founded in 1840

Calcasieu Parish is comprised of the cities and towns of Lake Charles, Sulphur, Westlake, DeQuincy and Vinton, town of Iowa, and communities of Carlyss, Gillis, Hayes, Starks, Bell City and Moss Bluff. This corner of the state was the famed “no-man’s land” where the pirates met the cowboys, and where Cajuns, Creoles, German immigrants, Midwesterners and pioneers from the South and West met to build a unique and vibrant urban community.
