National Historic Landmark – Louisiana’s Old State Capitol

Participants took a trip to Louisiana’s Old State Capitol, which stands high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The national historic landmark was first built in the mid-19th century and originally housed the Louisiana State Legislature. It is now a museum where visitors can go inside and learn about the political history of Louisiana as well as the history of the building. A lot has occurred in this building, and the fact that it is still standing has made it a symbol of the resilience of this state. Teams had to snap a photo of themselves taking a moment to learn about the history of this historic building.
