Interesting Facts About Belle Chasse

  • Belle Chasse serves as the headquarters of the Louisiana Air Force National Guard.
  • The origin of the name "Belle Chasse" is disputed among historians. Some believe it was named in honor of Col. Joseph D. Bellechasse, who was a resident of New Orleans in the late 18th century, while others say it was named after the plantation belonging to Deville de Goutin Bellechasse. 
  • The Belle Chasse plantation was a prominent landmark in the city for more than a century. However, after falling into decay in the 20th century, the plantation was destroyed in 1960. The plantation's massive bell was the only item that was salvaged.
