  1. Do not know about you guys, but am I the only one who would like New Orleans French Quarter buildings, parks, etc. As well as other iconic New Orleans-Cajun architecture? Just some random inner-French quarter houses. Bourbon Street. The St. Louis Cathederal and Cabildo (left) and state museum to the right. As well as outside of New Orleans other Louisiana cities like Houma, Napoleonville, etc. has interesting southern architecture of the past and present that would be a interesting thing, especially things like the old Houma Courthouse, before FDR's WPA tore it down for the current one. I personally would love to see this, as you can see it's my profile picture. Southdown Plantation in Houma would be a nice museum piece. Old City Hall, which could be modeled as a theater or a government reward building. St. Francis de Sales Cathedral . Hotel L'Acadian (could be not in disrepair) I have a flock of historic photos that the community has collected over the years if you need the borrow references if you want to take the request, just DM me.
  2. Welcome back to Winton, ready to begin the new 20th century? I can't wait to see the technological ideals arising, and to rise. Maybe more trains, and transportation, heck even maybe horses made of gears! It'll help out at the corral that's for sure. We do as the new year begins for us, have a new landmark for our little town. Welcome back, we see the general store and such at night lit up along Goodwin St. People gathering at the courthouse for a New Years celebration. Inside a band will be playing, food, and all in the first floor! Square Dancing, and so much more. All is welcomed! Free of charge! The neighborhoods are quiet, people are gathering at the courthouse, to see the quiet small streets like Broadmoor street here in its fine beauty. The school is also planting a small community garden, wish them luck in our climate; but it teaches the kids about real outdoorsy skills, and them not stuck inside on their washboards and guitars. This is the future, all of us outside, having a fun time! Now for the big landmark we were talking about! Which is named the, Alan Coleman Gazebo, after Doctor Alan Coleman, who was the town doctor till 1899 when he died at the age of 74. A great doctor he was, we miss him much in our town. We'll see you all in 1903.
  3. @kschmidt, My mistake, my railroad history is not that grand. I'll just fix it quietly.
  4. Welcome to the town of Winton, Arizona! The county seat of Buchanan County, home of our marshal, a doctor, and even a general store all connected by the Union Pacific! Such a lot of things thanks to our growing town of 893 people! This small town home to our colorful citizens and more is a great adventure as much as riding horse back down the valleys and mountains just east of our little settlement of home. Established in 1865, we welcome you into our little pocket of home, and come by Hickman's Saloon for yourself a drink and a piano show! We look first at the end of main street, where our little courthouse sits at the corner, home of Judge David Puckett, our judge since 1892, and around it sits little shops and a hotel at the corner of it, a height of building we say, it can't get better then this! I do say, from his time as judge, we seen only 65 hangings of them outlaws! Oh no! Looks like some of em' horses got our the corral, the men are probably to wasted back at a saloon to give a hoot! Hopefully the corral men and livery stablemen, will take care of them escapees! Here is the blacksmith and livery building now, now is it me, or is not a good idea to have a old fire casually just lite up in the middle of town? n The railroad stop of the Southern Pacific, one of the most isolated stops of the track. We see a train stop every month or so, and tickets are sold rather quickly if you want to get out of our town, then again who would want to get out of our little patch of heaven? Now, this is Hickman's and a beaut she is, she is a popular spot for the frontiersmen to stop by, and Mr. Hickman himself enjoys his little place. While there may be a shoot outs occasionally and the marshal comes and puts it down while the law and order, it's usually quiet when one of em' don't occur. Just don't tell the marshal about the sometimes illegal poker games going down, might get a bit nitpick with the bartender and playsmen! Now, for them children's education, we got ourselves a school house, state of the art I tell you what! Mr. Wilcox is the best teacher in the whole county, and he's the only one as well! Now to end it all, a picture of a horse stable by the corral for all them horses who like to escape! Now, we'll see y'all real soon in 1900, to celebrate the beginning of the 20th century!

  12. John, was a amazing asset our community, it will not be the same with him. May God care for him. He was a great guy. Nonny was a positive, helpful man here.
  13. Fixing the font size right now! Didn't even realise it myself. @Kschmidt The idea of the shopping district being so close to living is again, based off where I actaully live in Louisiana; where it is all one large cluster.
  14. Welcome back to Petal, today we are exploring to the major shopping area, west of the roundabout full of some of the best shopping in the area. Home of some of the large box stores, grocery stores, and restaurants , such as Walmart, Kohl's, Target, Winn-Dixie, Starbucks, and more! So let's hop in our cars, and drive to the latest place to shop in the Parish! As we start off; we start at the roundabout, where we will take the western way to the shopping, and more! Starting with a Winn-Dixie, Best Buy, and a McDonald's, the Winn-Dixie gives this town the southern feel that we preserve; and with the low, low prices; Keep the people happy with the freshest produce and meat, while across the street you can go buy that new computer to play Simcity 4! Going a bit more west, you come to the only Holiday Inn in the city; the original Holiday Inn was torn down in 1993 to build this; and the original was built in the 1960s with one of those big Great Signs of Holiday Inn, now it's a modern lodging area to provide all with comfortable lodging, and attempt to compete against the hotels in downtown like Holiday Park, and the other hotels on this part of the avenue. As well, is a simple Chevrolet dealership, with new cars and great service; the Petal Chevrolet dealership which has been in business since 1928, will service you till your happy! Like any other city, Walmart's store here is always packed, and with everything you need in a modern Walmart; that replaced the original one in 2015, it as well features Subway inside for a perfect stop for a sub, while shopping for your groceries, clothes, or anything really! Of course, there is non-shopping to; we have a Chuck E Cheese's and a Starbucks near the Holiday Inn, with a Rite Aid pharmacy, all in one intersection! There also, is a old Motorola office building for Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and the Alabama region to provide quick customer service and offices for those in the company or buying their products. Don't like Walmart? There is a Kohl's near the Days Inn and the Hampton Inn, to get you your discount clothing. Or if you want to go to the end of the shopping experience, is a Sam's Club, Lowe's or a Target. Notice the farms, and railroad; tells you the sense and the fast transition from city-suburb, to farms and rural. It really is a unique sight to see, and a characteristic of the city. Right off the avenue, sits a strip mall with a Arby's, Dollar General, and other small stores and a Home Depot, right in the suburban heart but not even a minute away from the avenue. To give you the sense of the shopping area's size, we couldn't even cover it in one photo from the end at the Roundabout! Show's how big it really is! We will see you next time here at Saint Clements Parish!
  15. @LivingInThePast Heh, Yes; I live in Louisiana myself, Where I live is about 30 minutes from New Orleans, and about 45 minutes from Lafayette; but I tried to capture the more Acadiana and Cajun vibe, and less than New Orleans', It to me has the vibe of where I live at; just if it was a little bit larger (downtown wise), though I did choose Waddle's purely because, I did think it would fit a bit better in with the drive in, even if it isn't Louisiana based. With not as many Louisiana based BATs to work with; I try to do the best I can. This city does have to take at it's core, it still is a Louisiana city, and it is a unique twist; and something to capture, even as myself who lived here most of my life, and was born here, it still for me was hard to capture a lot of the uniqueness that the southern area of the state has.
