Our Beginning

Our organization was founded in November of 1963 with the purpose of promoting local interest in the heritage of Baton Rouge and the state of Louisiana. The Foundation uses the resources of today to preserve the treasures of yesterday and improve the quality of tomorrow. 

Our aim is to promote cultural awareness and to encourage economic growth that revitalizes our communities. We seek to unite community leaders, business people, historians, teachers, and preservationists in a coalition approach to historic education and preservation advocacy.

The mission of the Foundation for Historical Louisiana is to promote the preservation of the cultural and architectural heritage of Louisiana through education, advocacy, and stewardship.

In September of 2016, the board of directors voted to adopt a new "doing business as" name for our organization, Preserve Louisiana. Our mission remains the same and as we move forward, the organization is proud to be referred to as Preserve Louisiana or PLA.
