    19 th century hearse

    the LSU rural life museum is an excellent place to experience what louisiana was like in the 1800's. the museum has an excellent collection of relics of life in rural louisiana. the star attraction of the museum is it's collection of 19th century hearses and cast iron coffins. on the grounds of the museum is a collection of over 25 19th century buildings. for those interested in history and southern culture the rural life museum is a very worth while stop in baton rouge.
