Property Description

Largely forgotten by the 20th century, the lifestyles and cultures of these preindustrial Louisianians are recalled at the LSU Rural Life Museum. Through its extensive collection of tools, utensils, furniture, and farming equipment, the museum preserves and interprets an important part of the state's and nation's rural heritage. The museum also serves as a research facility for LSU students engaged in heritage conservation studies.
