Information on OLD LOUISIANA GOVERNOR'S MANSION, USA

USA ESTA Application
Name: OLD LOUISIANA GOVERNOR'S MANSION
Details: The Old Louisiana Governor's Mansion is located at 502 North Blvd. between Royal and St. Charles Streets in Baton Rouge and was used between 1930 and 1961; a new residence was completed in 1963. When the original Louisiana Governor's mansion was termite-infested during the beginning of Huey Long 's governorship Long decided to build a new one on the site. This governor's mansion is modeled after the White House in Washington D.C. supposedly because Governor Long wanted to become familiar with Washington's White House. During the construction of this new governor's mansion Huey Long refused to move into the original one. Instead after his inauguration Long stayed at the Heidelberg Hotel in Baton Rouge while his family stayed back home in Shreveport . This building replaced the first Governor's Mansion which was a rather large though modest frame house constructed for Nathan King Knox a Baton Rouge businessman and was the official residence of Louisiana's Governors from 1887 until 1929 when it was razed and the present Old Governor's Mansion was built. The building cost almost $150000 to complete and at a cost of $22000 (a princely sum for depression-era Louisiana) the Mansion was furnished with the finest damask and velvet drapes crystal chandeliers hand-printed French wallpaper and other fine appointments.
Date: 1930
Address: 502 North Blvd.Baton Rouge Louisiana
