From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: Haughton, Louisiana



Saw this sign on a recent
road trip. Didn't dare ask
to stop!



Here is another photo saved by Marguerite Cook Clark. This is the town of Haughton in Bossier Parish, Louisiana - about 35 minutes from Marguerite's home of Ringgold in Bienville Parish. 


Barncastle Drugs and Groceries
The town's current website states that Haughton was named for the family of William and Harriett Hassell Haughton in 1884. Haughton, previously known as Lawenceville, was renamed after Mary Jane Haughton Lawrence sold land to the railroad, which already had a Lawenceville on it's route. In the photo, the railroad station is on the left and at the end of the road is Barncastle Drugs and Groceries.
