Several years ago a neighbor gave me this picture of the flooded village. I believe this dates to a massive flood from the late 1950s. It was this flood that led to the construction of an earthen levee along the westside of Eagle Creek, and later the development of the Eagle Creek Reservoir. The photo’s orientation is from the northwest corner of Dandy Trail (which led into the village from the westside of the Eagle Creek Valley) and Lafayette Road. It is looking to the north with Lafayette Road on the right side of the photo. The Traders Point Christian Church is the white building to the right of the Standard pylon sign. Nelson Roetter, a lifelong resident of the area, remembers seeing the pews floating in the sanctuary. The church later relocated to the top of the Lafayette Road hill at Moore Road and is now the site of the New Life Worship Center.
