100

New Houses Being Built in Bossier

Bossier City kicked off its centennial birthday over the weekend. It's a year long celebration that will wrap up with a time capsule being buried in April 2008.

Mayor Lo Walker says Bossier Parish is the fastest-growing parish in the state. According to the Bossier Chamber of Commerce website "The Bossier-Shreveport community serves as the trade and cultural center of the 200-mile radius extending into Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas (the “Ark-La-Tex”)."

Isn't it amazing how much can change in 100 years, and yet how young we are compared to other cities?

janedoughnut -- I wanna know why Bossier just turned 100 and Shreveport celebrated their sesquicentennial over twenty years ago?
