New Tour Guide

Family Life in Highland...
Wednesday at 10 a.m. a new guide to the historic homes in Highland will be unveiled at Meadows Museum, 2911 Centenary Blvd.

Following a brief presentation by Sue Ball and Eric Brock a trolley will take participants to several of the 75 homes listed in the newly printed guide.

The brochure is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. Shreveport Times reporter Sherry P. Shepard did a lovely story on the event.
