Italians of Sunnyside 1895-1995: 
A People of Faith, of Hope, and of Love.
Compiled and assembled by Libby Borgognoni
 Centennial Celebration September, 1995. pp 120. 325 pictures. A People Set Apart! Throughout the regions of Marche, Emilia, and Veneto over 100 families were the first families that embarked from Genoa, Italy in 1895 to New Orleans, Louisiana and there to Sunnyside, near Lake Village, Chicot County,  Arkansas; one of the first immigrations from Italy .  There were promises of parcels of 12 ½ acres of land and they would be proprietors after twenty years; the company would provide housing, agricultural implements, with its own railroad, gin and sawmill.  They were promised a church and a school that would complete the colonization of the area. But this was not to be!  The history and truth of this immigration and the peonage system in America has been researched and written by many authors, and much of this information is 
shared in this book.  
Our Lady of the Lake Church
Compiled and assembled by Libby Borgognoni
This book highlights the 100th anniversary of our church. Throughout the book there is a written and pictorial history of the pastors, religious orders, and communicants that served our church during this time. There are pictures that depict the past scenes of the parish life of this lively Catholic community.  This book is a glimpse of the past, which should be shared 
and not forgotten.
