DID YOUR ANCESTORS LIVE IN THE LLANO DEL RIO CO-OPERATIVE COLONY?

This episode of Big Blend Radio showcases the Museum of the New Llano Colony in Vernon Parish, Louisiana with featured guests museum director Mary Ann Fussell and Marci Cook of  Vernon Parish Tourism Commission. The interview was recorded on-location as part of the Love Your Parks Tour Family History Story series assigned by Holly T. Hansen of FamilyHistoryExpos.com.

 

 

New Llano, Louisiana was founded in 1917 by Job Harriman, a former U.S. Vice-Presidential candidate from California, and former Labor lawyer and Socialist politician. It lasted more than 20 years and is considered by many to have been America’s most successful socialist Utopia. The Museum of the New Llano Colony is committed to preserving the legacy of the Llano del Rio Co-operative Colony and aims to share the untold stories of the colonists and their efforts to prove that a co-operative lifestyle was superior to that of a capitalistic society of the early twentieth century.
