Historian Speaks About Shreveport Waterworks

Prof. Terry Reynolds spoke to the Preservation Society on Monday February 3, 2014.  He discussed his research relative to the Shreveport Waterworks and how that utility went from being privately held to publicly owned.  It was interesting to learn the process that Shreveport employed to bring drinkable water to the homes and businesses of that city over 100 years ago.
