Goose Point, Looking Towards Causeway 1975

This aerial photograph shows Goose Point south of Lacombe, with a view to the west towards the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway. It was taken in 1975. Click on the image to make it larger.

Early planning for the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway included a proposal for building a bridge between Milneburg in New Orleans and Lacombe, with Goose Point being the northern end of the structure.  

One can only imagine what Lacombe would look like today if the causeway had been built to tie into Goose Point.
