History Lives Here
Touring Baton Rouge means experiencing a city full of natural history and scenic sites. From its swamps to its plantations, you’re constantly getting a feel of how life used to be. The Louisiana State University Rural Life Museum is the perfect way to take a step back into yesteryear. Set up like an 1800s rural town, this historian’s oasis is located just five minutes from our Baton Rouge hotel. While there, visitors enter four hundred and thirty acres of farm grounds, old town schools, and depictions of classic rural life. Featuring preserved architecture, automobiles, and classic styled homes, you can tour old barns and get a taste of rural 1800s Louisiana. Tour the beautiful gardens and have your camera ready for some gorgeous landscape photography.
