Old Louisiana Governor's Mansion
502 North Blvd.
Baton Rouge, East Baton Rouge County, Louisiana, 70802
The Old Louisiana Governor's Mansion, home of Preserve Louisiana, was used as Louisiana's official gubernatorial residence between 1930 and 1963.
The building is reported to be inspired by the White House in Washington D.C. as it was originally designed by Thomas Jefferson. It is said that Long wanted to be familiar with the White House when he became president, so he had the White House duplicated in Baton Rouge. Some dispute this legend and simply say that the building is merely a fine example of a Georgian-style mansion.
The Old Governor's Mansion served as a residence to nine governors until 1963.
