Although the neighborhood of English Turn is a relative newly developed community, the area is actually an older place name than the city of New Orleans. In fact, if it were not for what happened there in 1699, New Orleans may never have been established. Accompanied by five fellow Canadians in two canoes, Bienville encountered an English corvette while sailing up the Mississippi River. He waived them down at the point now known as English Turn. With much persuasive enthusiasm, Bienville bluffed the English captain into thinking that the French had already established a colony upriver. He convinced them to turn around and find other suitable locales for their own colonial efforts. Bienville would later establish New Orleans.
In 1986 Jack Nicklaus created a masterpiece in his English Turn golf and country club community, and today the area is known mainly for his beautiful creation. The 18-hole renowned golf course is the site of a luxurious community today.
