A lil' history for the day...Built in 1902, this is the Pichot Stone Bridge...

Built in 1902, this is the Pichot Stone Bridge.
This rough-hewn cobblestone bridge was dedicated in the memory of Henrietta M. Leonie Pichot for her gift of $192.00 in 1901 to City Park.
Looking for it in modern day City Park? Coming down Dreyfous, it’s on your right before you cross Anseman Avenue. It leads to a tiny peninsula of land overlooking Bayou Metairie. There is water underneath this bridge only sometimes (depending on how high the bayou is at the time).
