The Old State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge Louisiana
Cookies headed to The Old State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge Louisiana.
There are new exhibits- one featuring the life and politics of Huey Long, who served as Louisiana's Governor from 1928-1932. He was shot in 1935 at the State Capitol Building and died 2 days later.
Sarah Morgan lived in Baton Rouge during the Civil War and kept an extensive diary of her experiences. Morgan’s life is evoked in “The Ghost of the Castle,” a new exhibit at the Old State Capitol which uses technology to figuratively bring Morgan back to life.
