Martha Palmer Collection

Consists of copies of several publications, most related directly to the New Llano Colony in Louisiana, as well as an assortment of items made and sold at the colony, correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs and more.

Unofficially dubbed Vernon Parish historian, Martha Palmer has collected much memorabilia relating to the entire area, but she's always had a great interest in the New Llano Colony.

As a child, she met some of the former colonists and, always very interested in history, was enthralled by their story. As an adult, she has not only maintained those relationships, but -- due to her interest in the subject -- met many more.  

Over the years, she has collected a wide assortment of items related to the New Llano Colony.
