Dedication of Pontchartrain Park
January 31, 1955
Caption on reverse: "New $25,000 clubhouse is one of the facilities already constructed in the 190-acre Pontchartrain Park. There is also a nine-hole golf course, picnic grounds and playground areas. Under continuous rapid development, more money has been made available for the development of more recreational facilities. A $15 million, 210-acre private housing subdivision is now being developed around the park. It will contain 1000 of the finest modern homes."
