A few days following the Crawfish Festival, we returned to Breaux Bridge, LA, just to visit the historic downtown. There are a number of residential and commercial buildings in the Historic District, but it is more than the history of these buildings that draws us back again and again.
An example of this attraction is the Kidder Building, built in 1909. Standing at the old four-corners intersection of Bridge and Main Streets in the heart of downtown Breaux Bridge, this building, which was originally intended as a saloon, has served as a cock fight arena and a WWII dance hall. It has housed many businesses including a health center, a Karate school, a gift shop and a clothing store.
As I was about to approach the driver, a group of about 10 adolescents came running toward the limo and the driver moved quickly to beat them to the car.
