Inn a part of Ruston history
Back in the late 1950s, about the only place in Ruston to eat out after church on Sunday was Lincoln Courts on East Georgia Avenue.
The Courts had a full-service restaurant, and menu that included a child’s plate of a fried chicken drumstick, mashed potatoes and English peas.
Then in 1962, Ruston got a Holiday Inn. It had a restaurant, too, one that soon became the place for everything from club meetings to class reunions. If it was your birthday or anniversary or retirement, you might even get your name put up on the trademark Holiday Inn marquee.
