|The Smokestack is located close to Shreveport-Barksdale Highway and Clyde Fant Parkway. There are
several stories about the previous uses of the smokestack. One story is that it was part of King's Truck and
Coach Works. The shop and the barn were in burned in the 70's and the smokestack is all that was left.
Supposedly the caretaker of the place killed the owner's widow for money when it was still in operation, and
in the midst of his escape, he impaled himself on a wrought iron gate. Another theory is that it is the remains
of a major oil refinery. One other story is that the property was used as a dairy farm as well. Still, the
Smokestack is still surrounded by strange tales and curious people just wanting to know. One e-mail stated
that a man went to the top of the tower and saw a large group of bees in the form of a human man. Even if
the place may or may not be haunted, from the pictures it's easy to see that it is a known place for gatherings.
