Overview

The most beautiful of America's fifty statehouses, the Louisiana capitol in Baton Rouge ranks second behind the New Orleans Superdome as the state's leading tourist attraction-and this comprehensive guidebook shows why.

Constructed in 1932 under the reign of Huey Long at a cost of only $5 million, the thirty-four-story tower houses some of the most impressive examples of art deco architecture in America.

A companion work to Pelican's lavish pictorial volume, The Louisiana Capitol, published in 1977, this book is an ideal in-hand guide for on-site observation, appreciation, and understanding of the capitol's art and history.
