The Leesville Mayor’s Women’s Commission recently presented their September 2021 Civic Awards for Beautification to two Leesville citizens. The residential winner was Chris and Karen Robertson, who live at 402 North 4th Street. Their house was built in 1890 in the shotgun-style and was used as a boarding house for railroad employees. They’ve owned the home for the past 33 years and have renovated it extensively, although it continues to be a work in progress.
