This cache has been archived.

isht kinta: Since the cache owner has not responded to my reviewer log about the cache, nor did they post a note to the cache page telling me and others of their intention to address the issue with it, the cache has been archived.

Some time ago, I posted a note to the cache page requesting the cache owner to post a response on what they were planning to do with the cache. I have no record of a response, and no response tells me that they are not planning on replacing or repairing this cache. If I am wrong with that assumption, please let me know promptly. I can always unarchive the cache for you if needed.

The city of Kenner is said to be the first land of the metropolitan area that  Europeans set foot.  The first Europeans to land in Kenner were Sieur de La Salle and Rene-Robert Cavelier.  At the end of Williams Boulevard where it meets the river you will find La Salle's Landing, a monument to the enduring history of Kenner.  Here, a number of flags under which Kenner existed since La Salle first landed.  Among them are the Union Jack, the flag of Spain, and the flag of the  Confederate States of America. 

La Salle's Landing served as a  port of trade throughout the 19th century and into the 20th century.  The city of Kenner was founded in 1855 by Minor Kenner.  The land was quickly developed with the Kenner  family owning three plantations.  The close proximity to the Mississippi River made Kenner an ideal location for trade.  The town bustled with the activity along its main street. This 16-block historic district is  piece of American history and Louisiana culture.   

La Salle's Landing was also the sight of the first heavyweight boxing championship.  On May 10, 1870 several thousand men gathered around a make-shift ring along the banks of the Mississippi River at La Salle's Landing.  They gathered to watch "the fight of the century"... "Gypsy"  Jem Mace, Heavyweight Boxing Champion of England take on fellow Brit, Tom Allen who held the title of American Heavyweight Champion.  The winner would be crowned the first Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World and awarded a purse of $2,500.00. Today you will find a life-size bronze statue with boxers in a fighting stance commemorating that day in history when Kenner was the sight where the first World Heavyweight Champion was crowned.
