The Garden District

I moved here 4 years ago from Shreveport. My territory with work  consisted of Louisiana, East Texas and Arkansas.  I love  old neighborhoods and when I would travel with work, I was always on the lookout for the perfect little house in a great Garden District.  I found it in  Monroe on 3rd street.  A bonus is that my house is only two blocks from a great public park and the lovely, underutilized Ouachita River." Dawn Eakin
