Business of the Week Spotlight

This week’s business of the week spotlight feature goes to the the Louisiana Political Museum & Hall of Fame! Visitors from all 50 states and 18 foreign countries have visited the Louisiana Political Museum & Hall of Fame in Winnfield, Louisiana, the only one of its kind in the world.
 
The museum is housed in the historic L & A Railroad Depot (circa 1905), which was donated to the City of Winnfield by the L & A Railroad Company in 1988. After five years of hard work by many volunteers and others who donated labor, materials and finances to the project, the Louisiana Political Museum was opened on August 30, 1993, the date of Winnfield native and Louisiana political stalwart Huey P. Long’s 100th birthday.
 
Ten years later in 2003, the Museum was adopted into the Louisiana State Museum system, and its mission remains vital – to provide scholarly resources and showcase fascinating memorabilia of Louisiana’s legendary political affairs.
 
Since the opening of the Museum, over 170 individuals have been inducted into the Louisiana Political Hall of Fame for their many achievements in and contributions to Louisiana politics.
