DeSoto is Different...
...because the victory at the Battle of Mansfield spared everything North of it
...because people valued their old homes and traditions and preserved them
...because the land is green and rolling, still dotted with cattle and round bales
...because the lake is vast, a river runs through it and the bayous are rich
...because the forests are filled with game, and the backroads beautiful
...because you never saw so many natural gas wells – and new hotels!
