Slidell Flag Plaza

In the fall of 2000, Slidell officials dedicated the "Flag Plaza and Monuments" which told the story of the history of Slidell and its founder and namesake. 

The plaza is located near the Train Depot on Front Street.

According to the dedication plaque, Mayor Salvatore A. Caruso, CAO Reinhard Dearing, and Council members Alvin D. Singletary, Dudley D. Smith, Lionel Washington, Jerry Binder, L. Landon Cusimano, Kevin Kingston, Marti Livaudais, Jack Cerny and Pearl Williams were serving the city at that time.

Other credits for the Flag Plaza included Architect NY & Associates, McDonald Construction Inc. and Sculptor Bill Binnings.
