Lakeview was primarily swamp in the early 1800s, like much of the Greater New Orleans area. French explorers first established an outpost where Bayou St. John meets Lake Pontchartrain. When the French occupied New Orleans, lakeview was used as an outpost, which is a small military camp or position at some distance from the main force, used especially as a guard against surprise attack.
The number 45 is the RTA bus line that travels from the Mid-City cemeteries to Lakeview.
