18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Old Capitol Building, Louisiana

While walking around Baton Rouge one day, I came across my favorite museum to visit as a boy. The Old State Capitol building was the seat of government from the middle 1800's antebellum era until the new capitol building was constructed in the 1930's under the administration of Huey P. Long and Oscar K. Allen. Built on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi, this building had the appearance of a medieval fortress.
