“We are honored to have hosted a tour this week with the Executive Director of The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation, Brian Davis and Director of Development & Membership, William Prince to conduct preliminary visits to our landmarks that will be included on the historic site tour being held Saturday, October 16, 2021.
The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation has selected Washington Parish as its next RAMBLE location. “The LTHP Ramble is a unique educational experience to see and learn about the different parts of Louisiana's historic character.” Two rambles are held each year, and we are honored that the non-profit group has selected our area to give the opportunity for others to learn about our communities history and preservation efforts.
“The tour will welcome history buffs, teachers, and student groups from all corners of the state to our community to discover the history and architecture of our own backyard.”
Some sites may be sites that are not usually open to the public, so we are hoping to draw in locals, as well as tourists from all around the state and beyond to visit our area and learn about our rich history.
Specials thanks to all those who have agreed to allow a visit on their site. We are thrilled to put our town on display.”
Bogalusa Historic Cultural District is also asking for volunteers to assist with the ramble. (Greeters, etc). If you can help, email SaveBogalusa@bellsouth.net. The ramble is scheduled for October 16 2021.
