Marker in roadside park honors memory of early Gary Tap resident,
to Shreveport to be ginned. That was the closest place I believe
the people could go. It would be as late as November or early
December before we could get a chance to start to school. That
depended on how much cotton we grew and how well it prodcuced.
The community rose early in the morning. We had to go to the
cotton field before the break of day. Before going to the fields,
we had to milk the cows, churn the milk and feed the hogs,"
The history of the church also is an important part of the
community's history. Shady Grove Missionary Baptist Church, tak-
ing its name from the grove of trees under whose branches the
church was built and organized in 1871, was orginially located
about two miles south of its present location. On April 5, 18849
it was rebuilt at its present.
