History of the Lake Rosemound Community
Lake Rosemound is a beautiful community nestled in the southern portion of a unique hardwood forest area - the Tunica Hills - in West Feliciana Parish, approximately 14 miles north of historic St. Francisville, Louisiana.
Once the location of cotton plantations, it was developed in 1960 by Lloyd Lindsey, Sr. and his brother-in-law, W.E. Groves, as a private community for single family homes and camps on 2256 acres of Louisiana woodlands. The community surrounds two spring-fed lakes (approximately 183 surface acres) where members enjoy boating, sailing, swimming, water skiing, and fishing for bass, bream, sac-a-lait and catfish.
A corporation was formed in 1991 by the property owners to assume supervision and operation of the development. It is now known as the Lake Rosemound Association, Inc. Currently, 300 members elect a Board of Directors with officers who govern the activities and maintain the lakes, dams, beach and boat landing.
The natural beauty of the area is enhanced with flowering dogwood, redbuds, magnolias, mock orange blossoms, roses, camelias, gardenias, tulip poplar trees, and azaleas. Recognized as a bird sanctuary, the Lake Rosemound Community is a safe haven for white egrets, blue and green herons, eastern bluebirds, cardinals, hummingbirds, and many more. White-tailed deer, gray and red fox squirrels, and the uncommon eastern chipmunks are frequent visitors to the properties.
The Lake Rosemound Community is, indeed, a spot of magnificent beauty and serenity, a place to relax and enjoy - a great place to live!
