(The Old Capitol in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.) Completed in 1850, this building served as the state house of Louisiana until the state capitol was moved to Opelousas, Louisiana to avoid capture by Federal troops. The Gothic structure was burned in 1862 while it was a Federal prison. On the grounds is the grave of Henry Watkins Allen, Brigadier General and Confederate governor of Louisiana.
