Mardi Gras In Calcasieu Parish

By Nola Mae Wittler Ross

"If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it."

-Herodotus

 

Ask any five people what Mardi Gras means and you'll hear five different versions.

"It's a religious holiday."

"It has something to do with the Lent."

"It has kings and queens and king's cakes."

"It's beautiful pageants and fantastic parades."

"It's masking and costumes and lots of fun."

Louisiana Homes

If Walls Could Talk!

Text By Nola Mae Ross, Photography By Harold Mangum

So much of Louisiana's heritage is tied up in its beautiful old homes and buildings. This book presents photographs of 90 of these in Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson Davis and Vernon parishes. These homes personify the wide cultural range in Southwest Louisiana. With its photographs and backgrounds of original landowners, this book reveals distinct personalities, yet certain similarities, which, when blended together, make up our unique Louisiana Heritage.
