    Louisiana Orphan Train Society Annual Gathering

    The Louisiana Orphan Train Society Annual Gathering reunites orphan train riders and their descendants at the LA Orphan Train Museum in Opelousas, Louisiana. The museum is one of two in the U.S. dedicated to documenting and preserving the story of the Orphan Train Riders who arrived from the New York Foundling Hospital to Louisiana in the late 19th Century. Because of the increasing number of occupants at the hospital, the Sisters of Charity requested assistance from Catholic families in Louisiana, placing more than 2,000 orphaned children in a new home.  

    Since the passing of Mrs. Alice Bernard in 2015, then the only known surviving orphan train rider from New York, members and descendants of the riders still gather in her memory at the annual reunion. There, participants exchange their New York orphan stories in an open mic. While you're there, view some of the artifacts on display and take a tour with Miss Flo.

    Country Antique Store Estate Sale

    Petite Rouge Antiques and Estate Sales is holding a four-day estate sale event in historic Washington, Louisiana. Formerly a country store, the building is full of antiques including a very large collection of iron collectibles, chandeliers, kitchenware, apothecary items, mid-century furniture, pianos, soda bottles, books, comics, and more. 

    The old country store on Highway 71 was first purchased by Hazel and Herbert Artigue in 1953. Hazel borrowed $50 to open her small grocery selling milk, bread, and basic household items. In the early 60s, the store closed due to Hazel's health. In the late 60's the Artigue family struggled financially after Herbert was injured on the job while working in construction on the Mississippi River Bridge. The couple needed a way to make ends meet and decided to combine Hazel's love of antiques with Hebert's passion for woodworking. Making repairs for a living, the Artigue's were finally able to save enough money to attend auctions. Soon Hazel and Hebert's small grocery evolved becoming an antiques and upholstery shop, their dream business. In the 1980's Hebert passed, but Hazel continued to visit the shop to clean and arrange their collection. Hazel passed in 2012, and the couple's collection is now open to antiquers who treat these treasures with the same love and care that the Artigue family once did.
