Many people who visit Rayne to enjoy its charming murals and picturesque streets know the community as a quaint city along their vacation's journey. However, Rayne is more than just a pleasant stopover for tourists and passersby; it is a destination in its own right–a multicultural, historic community that has enjoyed a vibrant and interesting past. Rayne's People and Places provides insight into the heritage and cultural lifestyles of its citizens–like some who jitterbugged at the old Hollywood Club, drank peach nectars at People's Drug Store, and ate biscuits at Paco's–by showing their families, homes, and workplaces.

Authors Tony Olinger and Cheryl Richard McCarty collected images from trunks in attics and private family albums for Arcadia Publishing's second pictorial history of the Frog Capital of the World. This volume tells the story of the Rayne of yesteryear, when the main street was simply an unpaved, dusty path lined with horses, wagons, and general stores and when life seemed a little slower and simpler.
