St. Francisville, Louisiana: A Place to Lose Yourself

There are 30 comments on the Associated Content story from Jun 8, 2010, titled St. Francisville, Louisiana: A Place to Lose Yourself. In it, Associated Content reports that:

St. Francisville is a tiny, unspoiled town in Louisiana. The town is stuffed full of antique shops, old gas stations converted into fine delicatessens, antebellum plantations that hug the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, and century old churches with graveyards that take your breath away.

Obviously you've never been there. St. Francisville has nothing that hugs the banks of the mighty Mississippi; there are no levees and plenty of floodwaters in the spring. The old gas station converted into a restaurant burned down several years ago. There are a couple of antique venues, but it's not exactly stuffed full of fine antique shops. But you're right, it is in Louisiana, and it is a great place. Let's just be accurate if we're doing a travelogue.

If what you are saying is true, I would like to know where my money is. I live here in ST.Francisville and can say there may be some people who are wealthy and yes there may be some who may look down on you, but why condem the whole town with one bad experience. Not every one who lives here is wealthy and rude. I can show you a many places where people live who are not wealthy and I can introduce you to a bunch of people who are really nice.

There are lots of snotty people everywhere, but St. Francisville is one place where money has never been the criteria for worth. Now go up the road to Woodville, yes, maybe there, but not St. Francisville. There are people with money who you'd never guess have a penny, and people with little money who are considered some of the finest people in town.

I used to work in St Francisville and found the people to be very decent people.
But of course there are some people who are not so nice but then it is like that everywhere.
My favorite little store in town was St Francis Art and Antiques it always had the best and most interesting things to see.

Just like every other small town. Nice people, not so nice people, haves and have nots, powerful people, peons. Another lesson learned about not being able to believe what you read on the internet or in a news paper. St. Francisville and Woodville are no different. Same story, different place.
The author of this piece was trying to sugar coat a minimally passable place of interest as something it is not, a Historical Tourist Mecca. Good luck with that.
oh well

I hate to see it when people bash their own community. It is sad that residents of St. Francisville (not all I know) can't appreciate what they have. I had a camp at Lake Rosemound for years. The time spent there and in the town of St. Francisville were wonderful. Be thankful for what you have--a wonderful community that is the envy of so many of the city folks down in BR.

I think St. Francisville is a great place. My dad worked at St. Francisville 30-35 years ago. I went to school there around 1977 and 1978. I remember a few people there Tim Waldon and Amy Temple. I think I have the names correct. If anyone knows them let me know how they are doing. Thanks

You died from boredom? Been there and done that? Could this be a message from beyond the grave? So there really is Topix and I-Net access after dying from boredom from living in SF! Yours was probably the dumbest post I have ever seen on this site. Boredom is self-inflicted. "Dummydom" is learned slowly by being self-taught.

Tim Walden became an alcoholic and had some trouble with his wife. She left him and he couldn't take it. He committed suicide. He was a nice guy with lots of problems. Rest in Peace, Tim.

I am married to a friend of the whole Walden Family and I am friends with his former wife. I talk to her and his son all the time. I am not saying they don't miss him, but they are living there lives.

I didn't say anything out of the way about either of them. Just stating the facts for the person who wanted to know what happened to him. I am friends with the Walden family as well. Good people!
