Beautiful Bon Secour continued to attract great men here for rest and relaxation. It is traditionally held that in 1702 Jean Baptiste LeMoyne, Sieur de Bienville, with his brothers, Iberville and Serigny, built a hunting and fishing lodge at Bon Secour. In 1763 the French ceded all this area to the British who held it until 1783. It is evident that the British knew the Bon Secour area well for they left many maps, which show it in fine detail.
