A new and exciting feature is now available for residents of Calcasieu Parish: the Calcasieu Parish Government Channel (C-GOV) has uploaded different highlights of the Parish's history. The jurors have been able to interview people who had a direct hand in shaping the history of the parish.

The Historical Archive includes stories behind the establishment of the parish library system, the acquisition of Chennault International Airport, obtaining a public service annex in North Lake Charles, developing a major parish drainage project, the renovation of the historic courthouse and more.

C-GOV Director Tim Hoefer says the archive will continue to grow throughout the year, and will feature many more videos and other historical interest stories. The archives are available for viewing HERE.
