258. Homer, Clairborne Parish (LA04)

Doh! Hey Tom Sawyer! Whitewash this! I managed to get to (from what I’ve been told) the oldest still extant courthouse in the entire state. It certainly looks to be a relic from an older age. I was curious what kind of style it until I stumbled on the handy and dandy plaque that told me “Southern expression of Greek architectural.” Of course, now that I’m straying from Texas, I’m sure I’ll be seeing a lot of other styles. And again, I’m a bit thrown by the almost complete lack of monuments. I’m starting to wonder if perhaps the vast monument layouts that I’ve been used to in Texas just don’t exist in other places. Of course, there are a few of minor note…

I pulled off to this building to make my search in the trees and foliage around it. The cache was a preform in some branches which I had no fun searching for in the wet among the other trash. I also ended up looking far longer than I wanted to. I’m sorry, but when I’m on the road, I just plain don’t want to try that hard. I’m more interested in the goal than the experience. But the goal was reached so I’ll stop babbling about it and tell you that I got back in the car, through the rain, to make it to…
