A Hundred Years of History in Those Roads

In case you haven't driven down Crowley's Parkerson Avenue lately, it's been going through a massive streetscape project that is almost complete. Today's Crowley Post-Signal has an interesting story by Paula Guillory talking about all the neat stuff they've been finding as they dig down 6 layers of old road material. Back in 1900 when the road was built, they used creosol treated cypress blocks as a base and those blocks are still there, in fact, they've found coins, horseshoes, buggy springs, and lots of other fun things. Read the full story here at
