Angola in Lincoln
The Lincoln Parish Library got a special treat Tuesday evening, and will have a piece of history in its halls for the next month, all thanks to the start of a new idea from the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
Starting Tuesday, and running through May 11 at the library, the Angola Prison Museum has started a traveling exhibit, “Farming on the Farm: Agricultural Operations at Angola.”
“There is just so much history at Angola that we want to try and pass it along as much as we can,” Angola Museum Director Marsha Lindsey said. “We really wanted to start a traveling exhibit, and this is our very first one we have done. And Ruston was our very first stop.”
