The Myths and Legends Along Louisiana Byways - Dr. Keegan LeJeune

The Myths and Legends Byway is a 150-mile route steeped in the history and folklore of Allen, Beauregard and Vernon parishes. The route begins near the Texas line in southwest Louisiana and travels through what was historically known as Louisiana's Neutral Strip-an area associated with stories of buried treasures, jayhawkers, outlaws, Indians, pirates, military maneuvers, and sawmill towns. This discussion highlights some of the stories travelers will encounter at different stops along the byway.
