VISIT 'THE LITTLE WHITE HOUSE' that survived the flood of water that took everything in its path 'past and around' this house, cars, boats,trees, houses in pieces, furniture etc. All was shown on TV as it was happening and everyone prayed for the little white house to resist and it did. Today it is in the middle of a beautiful park erected in its honour (in the centre of town) and in rememberance of the flood. This is right beside the 'Sacred Heart Church' which also was spared ( picture to follow).In the church basement they show a video of the flood for a small fee. One must remember that there were houses beside the little house. The addresses of those houses are carved in the park driveway in rememberance. Zoom in on the picture to see the little white house that survived and the ones that did not ( They are still there in the picture.) It is really hard to beleive that it was able to survive. ' A REAL MIRACLE'
After visiting this site we went to the river park and walked along the board walk to the Old Port and Marina a beautiful modern park and bike path with a huge fountain in the river beside the park. Worth a visit. It is also a bike path.
IN THE GREAT FLOOD OF JULY 17th TO 21st 1996 all this area was flooded. If you look closely you will see "THE LITTLE WHITE HOUSE" (NEAR THE CHURCH) Right click and "ZOOM IN" TO ENLARGE. It survived the other buildings around it were destroyed or removed.There is a big plant and 2 other houses between it and the church in this picture. They are no longer there'They were destroyed and had to be torn down. If you look at the picture of THE LITTLE WHITE HOUSE which follows YOU WILL SEE THAT IT IS A COMMERATIVE PARK NOW.
