    Old Governors Mansion

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Mansion was built by Huey Long in 1930 as Louisiana's answer to the White House. It has been restored to its original Georgian-style splendour and there are guided tours which tell the story of the governors who lived there. The mansion has the original crystal chandeliers and hand-printed French wallpaper.

    Open Tues - Fri 10 – 4pm and closed major holidays.
