One Lincoln Parish resident dedicates her time to help make the Lincoln Parish Museum the best it can possibly be — and she said “it’s just the teacher” in her.
Margaret Anne Emory, Lincoln Parish Museum Director, returned to Ruston right after Hurricane Katrina flooded her New Orleans home in 2005.
Since returning, Emory helped create the atmosphere of the Lincoln Parish Museum, housed at the R.W. Davis home.
“I’ve been a schoolteacher all my live,” she said. “It’s just in me.”

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

I am proudly New Orleans born and bred and spent many a Christmas morning opening gifts under the tree in our living room on St. Nick Drive in New Orleans.
Yes, I really did grow up on St. Nick Drive. Valentine Court was right behind us and Easter Lane behind that.
