1850-1862, 1882-1932

This Gothic Revival structure was designed by James Harrison Dankin. The Louisiana Secession Ordinance was adopted here in 1861. The interior was burned in December 1862 while the building was occupied by Federal troops. Reconstructed by William Freret in 1882, it served as Capitol until 1932. The cast iron fence dates from 1854.
