About Louisiana’s Old State Capitol

Louisiana’s Old State Capitol was fashioned in the Greek Revival style in the 19th century. It served as the state house from 1840 to 1876. Today, it is Louisiana’s historic government building and a museum that stores Louisiana’s exhibits, programming and arts. This building has a unique architectural perspective and is worth a look. It stands high and mighty on a bluff over the Mississippi River. Exhibits here include Baton Rouge and the Civil War, The Legacy of Huey Long and The Governors’ Portrait Gallery. The Old State Capitol hosts various events and can be rented out as a venue for occasions like weddings. Besides, this historic building is close to prestigious hotels like L’Auberge Casino and Hotel, Hampton Inn and Suites Baton Rouge, and the Watermark Baton Rouge.




Louisiana’s Old State Capitol is an attractive and glorious structure in Baton Rouge. Also known as the State House, it housed the state’s Legislature from the mid 19th century until the modern capital tower building was erected in 1932.
