Huey P. Long Mansion
Built in the 1920s, this stately home is the last remaining residence owned by Louisiana Governor and U.S. Senator, Huey P. Long (1893-1938). The house is privately owned today but it can be easily seen from the road. It is a good example of late 19th and early 20th century architecture. Long only lived here from 1832, after his term as governor, until 1938 when he was assassinated. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
