Lacombe, LA to Lacombe, Alberta

By Don Sharp & Anita R. Campeau

In 1999, ten citizens from Canada's "Lacombe" came to celebrate the three hundred anniversary of the establishment of Louisiana as a French colony. The village of Lacombe initiated the "twinning" as a "FrancoFete" activity of Louisiana's Tricentennial Celebration - the state of Louisiana and the province of Alberta. An ongoing association between the state of Louisiana and the province of Alberta, Canada, as "Twin" regions was established. In what ways are the two Lacombes similar and in what ways are they different? Close historical ties exist between the two and to a certain extent their history is chronologically parallel. This book reveals those fascinating histories.

The Amite River:
The Cradle of Livingston Parish

By Don Sharp & Anita R. Campeau

The Amite River starts as two forks, about 100 miles long, with its source in Amite County, Mississippi. It courses down through the parishes of East Feliciana, St. Helena, East Baton Rouge, Livingston and Ascension, forming boundary lines between the same. On February 10, 1832, the Louisiana Legislature created Livingston Parish out of the southern portion of St. Helena Parish. This is the story of the people who played a key part in settling the Amite River, and making it the "Cradle of Livingston Parish."
