Old Governor's Mansion - Louisiana
The Old Governor's Mansion, built by Huey P. Long in 1930 and nicknamed "Louisiana's White House," has served as official residence to nine Louisiana governors and their families. It was lived in the longest by the flamboyant Earl K. Long, known for cavorting with exotic dancer, Blaze Starr. The Mansion has White House similarities, a secret staircase, original frieze work and moldings, terrazzo floors, and crystal chandeliers. The extensive collection includes memorabilia from the "You Are My Sunshine" entertainer and governor, Jimmie Davis. The Mansion is now a splendid historic house museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
