Next Museum Exhibit

The Old Post Office Museum will open “Flood of ’27,” on March 23rd to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the most destructive river flood in the history of the United States. Over 27,000 square miles were inundated with flood waters ranging up to a depth of 30 feet.  Franklin Parish was one of thirty parishes in Louisiana that bore the brunt of the flood, as shown in the above photo of the post office in Baskin.  The museum is seeking any old photographs or flood-related items that might be included in the exhibit.  Call 435-3781 for further information.
