Ascension Parish Negro Fairgrounds

I've had this church on my list for awhile & it is still locked up, so no inside shots. I wasn't aware right next door were fairgrounds established as the Ascension Parish Negro Fairgrounds. There isn't much left & I shot the only standing building left. There was a bit of a playground with some people on it so I didn't shoot it. Established in 1950, some citizens established the place to encourage farming in the community. Here's a link to one of the only web sites about the place. ~ https://www.hmdb.org/marker.asp?marker=85750
