Larose Hotel demolished to make way for levee

Larose Hotel demolished to make way for levee

The old Larose Hotel, as it has been known for decades, built in 1946, is currently being demolished to make way for levee construction.

The South Lafourche Levee Districtis raising the levee protection in that area from an 8 ft. level (from the road) to a +13 ft. with a levee or sheet pile wall.

The hotel, which stayed in business through the nineties, was a two-story building that initially housed a restaurant, kitchen, gambling room and dancing area on the first floor, and rooms for renters on the second floor. It was also a place for many customers, who for years, just wanted to pass a good time playing boure.
