Cool little town. Would like to explore the old and abandoned elementary school across from tower.

Transylvania General Store

While passing through the state of Louisiana we saw the water tower and there is also a general store. It only has some cheap magnets for mementos.

My wife and I drove through this sleepy Louisiana town on vacation in August. We were pleased to see that the locals embraced their interesting name, topped by the water tower complete with a bat.
