Lacombe Area Recollections

About 47 years ago, Hilda D. Streck wrote a delightful account of life in the Lacombe area in the early and mid 1900's. The story included highlights from her childhood, with information about fishing, gigging, schooling, and trips to Slidell in its early days. The memory of her first hurricane is especially interesting. 

There are a lot of people named, stores mentioned, and progress made as Lacombe grew into a larger and larger community. 

There are four pages. Click on the images below to make them larger and more readable. If you would like to download a PDF file of the booklet, CLICK HERE.
