Both the old governors mansion and old state Capitol are closed today. Signs say they're open as well as websites. It would have been nice to know before driving all this way!!!!

As part of Louisiana's history it is well worth a visit to see how the Governor lived in days gone by. There are regular tours with very informative guides. Make this one place to visit alongside the Current and Old State Capitol Buildings.
