Teen Age Center

Parish: Evangeline

Location: Mamou

Terry McDaniel: “I’m from Pine Prarie, which was somehow a dry ward in the 1950s. The Rock Island Line railroad ran south through Turkey Creek, Pine Prairie, Easton, and Barber Spur on down to Mamou. Before anyone could drive, my buddies and I would jump onto south bound train cars and jump off in Mamou. We’d walk over to the Teen Age Center and go to dances. We’d usually just catch a ride back home in a car.”
