I think it's been 3 months since my last grab!



I did not know this town even existed. My challenge now is to get a new tag picked before dark! I am working all weekend.

FAIL -

You must name what the other kind of shoes would be to successfully TAG this one.

1. Bowling
2. Dance
3. ?


If you walked around the building you will know this answer, if you did not you seriously missed out on the splendor of the Tag.

One of the best, if the not the best, historic landmarks in Douglas County, IMHO.

I had to ask the Postmaster if she knew what kind of business duPont was conducting there when they built the town and the Village Club for their employees. Since duPont is know for carpet, chemicals, film and other chemicals, I was curious. She said explosives!

http://www.douglas.co.us/historic/Lo...lage_Club.html

The Club was constructed in the Craftsman style. It was unusual to find in rural Douglas County this level of architectural sophistication. When complete, the Club was the largest building of its kind in the County.
The DuPont Company built the Louviers Village Club to bring employees together for entertainment and recreation. Upon its opening, the Club housed an assembly hall and a billiards room on its main floor. The assembly hall was used for a meeting room, dance hall, and moving picture theater. A bowling alley was adjacent to the main building. DuPont sponsored the bowling league.
The uses of the building changed over the years. For example, at various times it housed a mercantile store, post office, shooting range, reading room, barbershop and concession stand. With partial funding from a State Historical Fund grant, the County restored the Club between 2001 and 2007.

Mainstreet Center. Note the spelling. Originally a school house for 1-12 grades
Go instide there is a scale model of the town from back when there were out houses behind most of the buildings.And there a restored Clasroom Inside. There are some historic pics and I was surprised to see that the main road from here towards the springs was dirt not all that long ago.
