“a Gothic-architectural treasure”

Louisiana's Old State Capitol, a Gothic architectural treasure, stands high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River in downtown Baton Rouge. Today, the building stands as a testament to bold, inspired leadership and active citizenship.

In 1847, Baton Rouge lured Louisiana's capital away from the city of New Orleans with the donation of a plot of land high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi. Architect Jame The Capitol around 1890s Harrison Dakin (1806-1852), a New York native with a thriving practice in New Orleans, was retained to design the new capitol building.
