Louisiana’s Old State Capitol, a Gothic architectural treasure, stands high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The old statehouse, which began construction in 1847, has withstood war, fire, scandal, bitter debate, abandonment, an occasional fistfight and a restoration. Today, the building stands as a testament to bold, inspired leadership and active citizenship.
