Huey P. Long’s Dining Room Set


 

 

    When some people think of Louisiana, they think of New Orleans and its Mardi Gras, or of Cajuns and their food, while others think of Louisiana’s famous politicians.  And when they think of Louisiana politicians, what comes to mind? Well, Winnfield of course! And if that’s not what comes to mind, it certainly should be. You see, Winnfield is considered the birthplace of politics in Louisiana and is the home of the Louisiana Political Museum & Hall of Fame. It’s also the birthplace of three Louisiana Governors – Huey P. Long, Earl K. Long, and O.K. Allen.

    The Louisiana Political Museum and Hall of Fame was created by an act of the Louisiana Legislature in 1987.  The museum is housed in the old Winnfield railroad depot that was donated to the city by the L&A Railroad and was moved to its present location on Main Street.  (Take a Virtual Tour of the Museum now!)

    The Museum is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST (and on Saturdays by appointment). Admission is free. Groups are welcomed and encouraged.
