Rodessa history:

Rodessa was one of the last boomtowns in America and hit during the mid-30s. It provided much of the fuel during World War II via pipelines to Baton Rouge, La. It swelled from a few hundred people to thousands almost over night and within 10 years was practically over with. A new expensive school built in 1939 with Federal and private funds was a showcase for Louisiana. It is now vacant and falling down. The high school lasted only a few years. Rodessa, in 2001, was reduced to about 350 people.
