Example text

Three rooms wide under a single roof line, in classic dogtrot style, the center room has no walls front nor rear. It's like a porch except it runs through the middle of the house, open to the breeze. A plaque recounts the journey of Absaz lom Autrey Page 29 from an Alabama hill farm to the grave out back where he's flanked by the two wives he outlived. The origins of the dogtrot style are considerably more obscure. Once popular across the upland south, some believe it was brought to Delaware in 1638 by Swedish immigrants; others claim it's a poor man's version of a Georgian manor.

S. Route 79 south. A right on Parish Road 111, then again on Parish Road 114 leads to the replicated buildings surrounding three original dwellings, including the countess's own. Though she had her house decorated with fancy wallpaper and filled with the music of her piano, the frontier hardship which the museum brings to life must have seemed to her so very far from civilized old Europe. Caney Lake Recreation Area, off Parish Road 111, is part of Kisatchie National Forest. Its Sugar Cane Trail snakes over seven miles through forests, over hills, past lake views and even the ruins of an old mill where locals had their ribbon cane rendered to syrup.

If traversing Morganza Spillway whetted your hunger for public works, from Louisiana 1 it's thirteen miles on Louisiana 15 to the gargantuan Old River Control Structure (tours by appointment). Forget mere flooding. This marvel keeps the Mississippi from changing course to pour down the Atchafalaya River, bypassing Baton Rouge and New Orleans entirely. Across the Atchafalaya at Simmesport, a park commemorates the last battle of the Civil War's savage Red River Campaign. From there, road and railroad cut straight through the cotton and soybean fields of yet another floodway.
