Following the War of 1812, brick forts were built on both The Rigolets and Chef Menteur Pass to guard New Orleans from attack via Lake Pontchartrain. Fort Macomb is across Chef Pass, while Fort Pike is just north of the marsh acreage bordering The Rigolets.

At Chef Menteur Pass, the oldest hunting and fishing club in the country, the Tally Ho Club, is a neighbor. This club was founded in 1815.

The family of the current owners acquired this property over 100 years ago. The land along Highway 90 was once home to many waterfront weekend houses and fishing cabins. Nearby areas have been largely rebuilt. This property represents the last bulk opportunity of its type between these two passes.
