EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Saint John the Baptist Parish, LA

Pros: Very few, initially, it was just to get a bigger house with a little bit of yard for a reasonable price 10 years ago...

Cons: The local Parish politics are stereotypical of Louisiana corruption and inability to get even the simplest things passed...

This is a good place to Find alligators in you back yard.
