Fodor's Review

This Georgian-style house was built for Gov. Huey P. Long in 1930, and eight other governors lived here thereafter until 1956. The story goes that Long instructed the architect to design his home to resemble the White House, representing Long's unrealized ambition to live in the real one. Notable features on the guided tour include Long's bedroom and a secret staircase. This historic house museum also serves as the Foundation for Historical Louisiana headquarters and functions as a venue for special events.
