Lake Vista, New Orleans. In 1698, two French-Canadian brothers, Iberville and Bienville led a French expedition to colonize the Gulf Coast and confirm the French claim to the Louisiana Territory. In 1704, Iberville built a small fort at the junction of Bayou St John and Lake Pontchartrain. The brothers went on to found the cities of Biloxi and Mobile and in 1723, Bienville returned to found the city of New Orleans on the Mississippi River on the portage route from Bayou St John. Today the ruins of the Spanish built fort on the site of Iberville's original fort know as "Old Spanish Fort" is within the boundaries of beautiful Lake Vista.
Lakeshore and Lake Vista, which are adjacent to City Park and the Lake Pontchartrain shoreline, are two subdivisions that grew out of the lakefront reclamation. Residences in the area range from the comfortable to the luxurious, comprising one of the wealthiest residential areas of New Orleans (Census 2000).
