The Marie Antoinette Overlook on Route 6 can be seen behind the largest monument in the LaPorte family cemetery, which is one of seven planned stops on the Deep Down History Tour planned for Sunday, Aug. 7, at French Azilum Historic Site. The LaPortes were one of a few French families to remain in the area after the colony failed, but they did not produce many offspring, so their name faded away with much of the site’s history. Photo by Rick Hidukfrenchazmonument811.jpg
