Not sure about anything near Shreveport. The only ones I've ever seen were near Winnsboro in the Fort Necessity area. My best friend literally lives in the middle of one haha

If you follow Ellerbe Road southwards, you'll start to hit some cotton fields. It's pretty cool to look at when it's "in season," but it's just boring brown farmland for the rest of the year.

North of Shreveport on US71 are some fields of cotton and the along the roads leading to the river. Cotton is not as widely planted as it once was, having been overtaken by corn and soybeans. Corn grown for ethanol is the big crop nowadays.

We just moved here 6 months ago, and people said South Youree Dr. (where Lowes, Willis-Knighton Hospital, etc.) used to be cotton fields but they have been developed now.

P.S. Check out great houses off Norris Ferry Rd. which is off Ellerbe.

Where ChevyLand and Super Target are located on Youree Drive used to be a big cotton field. Also, just west of the on E. 70th used to be all cotton. Now it's concrete!

Drove down to Columbia from Monroe on US165 today; looks as if most of the cotton has been harvested for the year. Still some fields ready for the picker but most fields are cleared and furrowed until next year. Fall in the air!
