Oh, I forgot to add that the Salvation Army across Airline from The Bellemont was the place that drug smuggler turned informant Barry Seal was gunned down while doing community service.

By Monique: "I was working there the winter that Exxon blew up-it shook the place like an earthquake. Very frightening stuff. That same winter, BR experienced a severe freeze." I had just moved to BR from Ft. Polk the year Exxon blew up and yes it was bitter cold that year. I remember foraging a nearby field for firewood. A few years later I attended a company Christmas party at The Bellemont and remember what a grand old place it was even then. It was still the place to go.
