Bruning House Remnants

Bucktown, Louisiana

This is all that is left of a once beautiful, century old white southern-style house with wrap around porches that sat on this peninsula on Lake Pontchartrain. It had survived many big hurricanes but none like Katrina. It was shown in the movie "The Big Easy" and was occupied by a fourth generation of the Bruning family who had a famous seafood restaurant nearby. The restaurant also became treasures of the swift, destructive waters of Katrina.
