Quote from Louisiana Pirate Fest Organizer, @louisianapiratefestival:
“LEGEND HAS IT…
Almost three centuries ago, a pirate named “Jean Lafitte” and his band of buccaneers were fleeing enemy ships and heading west to Galveston. Legend has it that Lafitte & his band of buccaneers would hide out along the waterways in Lake Charles. Legend also has it that Jean Lafitte’s favorite hideout was Contraband Bayou in Lake Charles where his treasure (silver & gold) was hidden and buried by Lafitte in his favorite hideaway Contraband Bayou and hence given why the bayou is named Contraband Bayou.
