More About Historic Baton Rouge Architecture by Jim Fraiser; Pat Caldwell; Jim Frasier
 
 
 
Overview

The buildings of Louisiana's state capital are a continuing monument to its history. Each of the city's celebrated structures has a story to tell in this collection of more than fifty profiles. Included in each building's description are additions, renovations, and residents' personalities. The assassination of Gov. Huey P. Long and his subsequent burial in the English gardens of the Louisiana Capitol and the rare Greek Revival-styling of Santa Maria Plantation are some of the featured characteristics of these storied Baton Rouge buildings.

Descriptions and photographs of these architectural treasures are grouped by geographic districts. In East Baton Rouge, the Rabalais House, a five-bay, double-galley structure, is featured. Also included is the 1908 Queen Anne Revival-style Reymond House, which has been painstakingly returned to its former glory and added to the National Register of Historic Places. Photographic emphasis on details such as the crenellated and louvered belfry and pointed lancet windows of Baker Presbyterian Church provide an intimate view of these historic sites.
