Facts about Lake Charles
Serving as the parish seat for Calcasieu Parish, Lake Charles is located at a point where Prien Lake, Lake Charles, and Calcasieu River come together. The city serves as a key center for industry, culture, and education within the southwest part of Louisiana. According to the 2020 census, Lake Charles has a population of more than 84,800 people.
Incorporated in 1857 as the town of Charleston, Lake Charles was already developing into a commercial and educational center. That continued when the town was reincorporated as the City of Lake Charles in 1867. The first recorded major disaster in the city was the Great Fire of 1910, which left much of Lake Charles in ruins.
Hurricanes have also hit the city from time to time. Hurricane Rita in 2005 caused a great deal of damage. Hurricane Laura in 2020 also left much of the city with much to repair. Less than two months later, Hurricane Delta again created a lot of damage, destroying more homes and businesses.
Despite hurricane strikes, Lake Charles continues to be significant as a center for a number of industries. Oil refining, tourism, and gambling are prime examples. Due to the number of lakes and waterways that wend through the city, it's sometimes referred to simply as the Lake Area.
