Below are some pictures from our recent visit.
The old state capitol building, located at 100 North Blvd in Baton Rouge, has tons of architect and history built into every square inch. As you approach the building, the first thing you notice is its built on a hill and looks like a castle.
As you enter the building, you are greeted by a beautiful staircase.
I know you want to go right up the stairs but take a chance to grab a map before getting started.
On the first floor is an excellent exhibit of Huey P. Long (picture above).
Be sure to watch the movie from the ghost of the castle!
Also on the first floor is an exhibit on Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville (pictured below).
After exploring everything on the first floor, head up stairs for this amazing view.
Be sure to check out the rest of the place. We can’t include all of the good details.
