The Baton Rouge Corvette Club joined other area Corvette groups to promote the Southern Forest Heritage Museum in Long Leaf on Nov. 5.

The museum spans 57 acres and displays rare equipment and buildings from the early 1900s, including three steam locomotives, a round house, a saw mill with a belt and a shaft-driven machine shop in operation. It also covers the early days of logging and forestry dating to the late 1890s.

The Baton Rouge, Crescent City, Greater New Orleans, Northshore and Lafayette Corvette clubs met at Prejean’s Restaurant in Lafayette for food and Cajun music before exhibiting 15 Corvettes to promote the museum. Cars ranged from the classic 1957 to the new 2017 models.
