This photograph was taken at the Mile Branch Settlement during the Washington Parish Free Fair. The breeze was mild. The sky was blue. Everyone was in a good frame of mind. The cabins at the Mile Branch Settlement were moved from their original locations in Washington parish to their present site. The first cabin was moved into MBS in 1976. To avoid deterioration and to present an educational experience for future generations of the culture of the 1800 and early 1900’s required that these dwellings be relocated to the MBS.
