Lacombe is a Creole colony first visited by Pierre le Moyne Sieur d'Iberville and four Canadians in 1699. Lacombe is the love connection to Nouvelle Orleans, just 15 sparkling miles across Lake Pontchartrain. It was the site of the Battle of Lake Pontchartrain, the only naval battle between the British, American colonists, and the Spanish, during the American Revolution. It is the home of Louisiana's famed Chahta Ima, missionary to the Choctaw Indians and unrecognized literary great of the 19th century.
Lacombe is the gateway to America's most interesting city: New Orleans, the gateway to America's Riveria: the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and the gateway to the old plantation era South.
