As a native of Alexandria, I spent the first 20 years of my life there. I still have strong connections with the people, and history, of Alexandria and Pineville and all of Louisiana. I remain interested in the continued success and growth of the area. This web site was originally launched in 2000 to remember and share the good things of the past.

The places of the past as shown in this Retrospective remain a integral part of my life. The people of Alexandria past ... I can’t forget, I’ll never forget. About them, and where they lived, and the families they raised and the town they helped build. Indeed, some physical buildings may crumble and lie neglected. But the people who built that town will always be remembered, in my heart and in my soul.

And the future of Alexandria is bright, as the city has become a major business, retail and healthcare center. It is also a popular tourist destination, as visitors take advantage of the city's arts and cultural offerings, and a wide varity of outdoor recreation activities.

We hope to continue to support the Alexandria-Pineville community, and to provide resources for residents and tourists alike.
