Lakeside is a residential neighborhood in Shreveport, Louisiana, USA.
In the 1920s and '30s, many of the area's houses were shotgun-style homes that contained no indoor plumbing and had rental rates ranging from $1.25 to $2.50 per week. The homes were built on rough land surrounded by unpaved streets and sidewalks.
Lakeside Acres was built in the 1960s and housed many of the area's doctors, teachers, lawyers and other upper middle-class citizens. The homes in Lakeside Acres still stand today, while many other Allendale area homes are dilapidated and some are being torn down for new structures.
The area's first public housing complex, Elamito Terrace, was completed in 1951. Elamito Terrace, the name of which later was changed to Jackson Heights, was torn down last year[when?] to make way for apartments for the elderly.
In 2001, the Fuller Center for Housing partnered with Shreveport-Bossier Community Renewal to start building low-income homes with hopes of revitalizing the neighborhood.
