History on a Pinhead

The community has no 19th Century history and very little in the 20th. It sprang up after 1950 as an alternative to living in Gonzales
. If something noteworthy happens in Little New York, we hope someone will let us know.

Photographer's Note:
"Little New York just consists of this abandoned house and the Church. The cemetery is listed several places as St. James but the sign says Brasco.

There was something captivating about this cemetery. Its remoteness, its disrepair and the old tree. I looked at the gravestone with the mother and child who died in 2004 and couldn't help thinking about how they may have died or the woman who died at 38 back in 1940."
