Early Cajun settlers of Southwest Louisiana, who established Poupeville, demonstrated their courage and determination by moving businesses and homes one mile north, relocating on the site of the Louisiana Western Railroad, the first train depot serving the settlement renamed "Rayne". Its platforms were used many times for public meetings and political gatherings including such well-known figures as Huey Long, Dudley LeBlanc and Earl K. Long.
