With the cooler weather finally beginning to settle around Lincoln Parish, we encourage residents to get out and enjoy the crisp air.
In fact, we’ll help you out with a few ideas on how to celebrate this new change in season, just in case you didn’t have any in mind.
For those who enjoy a good visit with your fellow citizens while also enjoying a cold beer, North Central Louisiana Arts Center’s ARToberfest will begin at 5 p.m. for early bird admission and 6:30 p.m. for general admission on Saturday at the Norton Building.
There’s no doubt about it, Ruston is a railroad town. The community was founded in 1883 after construction of the first rail line from Shreveport to Monroe.
Over the years, the coming of both freight service and passenger service helped Ruston grow until eventually it became the parish seat. At its peak, in the early 1900s, the young community sported six rail depots, several downtown hotels and a list of businesses that either began or flourished because of the railroad.
