Thanks to Sheryn Bowling, who attended the Semmes School in the 1950s for sharing these photos. Click on a thumbnail to enlarge.
Sheryn grew up in the big two-story house on the corner of N. Rampart and Reynes Streets. Her great grandfather built it when he came over from France. The Acadian style house (now a church) on the lake side of Deslonde and N. Rampart was her other great-grandparents’ home. The house in between them at 4921 N Rampart was her grandparents’ house.
