Lake Bistineau and Bayou Dorcheat Communities


               As Lake Bistineau and Bayou Dorcheat continued to grow in importance to the early Indians and later the early European Settlers several communities were born on their surrounding lands. I will attempt to provide a brief description of these communities and settlements with as much detail that I can muster up from old newspapers and other sources. So if I have left out some details that you are privy to and would like to share with everyone, please contact me at

I will be adding to this list as I develop the information, so please be patient if I have not included your favorite community.
