Fishville in Grant Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
The Community of Fishville
Fishville has been an area resort since the 1820s. The community began as a summer retreat for residents of Alexandria, escaping the surrounding mosquito-laden river bottoms. One of Fishville's most noted summer residents was nineteenth-century author Timothy Flint whose memoir of Daniel Boone became the basis for many of the legends that surround Boone today. By the mid-twentieth century Fishville had evolved into a regional vacation spot on Big Creek, home to Dean's Hole, Slick's Skating Rink and Store and Ed Hawthorne's Store and Dance Hall.
Erected by The Grant Arts Council in Memory of Neal Tison Curry and Inez Peters.
