Bastrop, Louisiana, History Club Preserves Morehouse Parish History

The Family History Club has provided a valuable service to Morehouse Parish over the past two decades by collecting and preserving historical and genealogical records. The club’s library of historical books and ancestral records have recently moved into a new, larger genealogical room at the Snyder Museum in Bastrop. Here one can find a treasure trove of information for the purposes of research and human interest.

“We have a vast collection at the museum,” said Fay Bowe, who is a charter member of the club. “To me, history is very important because it is ongoing. Morehouse Parish history is so interesting to delve into.”
