Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, 1987. Copyright © State Aerial. Share

This picture is of the home of W.L. "Bill" Caldwell which was built in 1950. He owned the Four Pine Ranch which consisted of about 2300 acres at Gillis, Louisiana. The ranch farmed rice, soybeans and cattle. He raised Quarter Horses and trained and showed Cutting Horses. He and his wife Estelle started the Ranch in the late 1930's. Later, the house shown and about 440 acres was inheirted by C. C. Caldwell and his wife Oma and presently is owned by their son Robert Caldwell. A present day picture would still show the barns shown, a large riding arena behind them and the house has been replaced by a new one in 2005.

—Robert "Bob" Caldwell
