Louisiana’s Significant Landmarks
Sites of New Orleans, Plantation County & More
When you think Louisiana, you think massive plantations, bustling historic districts, and the sights, sounds, and smells of the famed French Quarter.
The Bayou State is no slouch when it comes to historic sites, so let us be your guide to the illustrious landmarks of Louisiana.
Other historic sites – most of which are both a U.S. National Historic Landmark and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places – include Tulane University, the Old U.S. Mint, and the scenic Garden District neighborhood.
Southern Louisiana – home to both Plantation Country and Cajun Country – features plantation tours, museums, and many an Acadian attraction. During your time in this colorful section of the world, be sure to visit the Historic Donaldsonville Museum in Donaldsville, the Cajun Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Eunice, and famed antebellum antiques like the Oak Alley Plantation, Myrtles Plantation, and Rosedown.
The Bayou State’s central sector is home to historic cities like Alexandria and Natchitoches – the oldest community from the Louisiana Purchase. Check out the Natchitoches Historic District, or head over the Los Adaes State Historic Site for a tour of the area’s eighteenth century attractions.
Northern Louisiana yields the city of Shreveport, a town with almost as many historic sites as New Orleans. Stick around Shreveport for the Caspiana House, the Fairfield Historic District, and the Shreveport Municipal Memorial Auditorium – a U.S. National Historic Landmark, and found on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
