As with many people in Louisiana, we have made the trip to the state capitol lots of times.
How many times do we really "look" at what is there?
On a bitterly cold November day I made my 'umpteenth' visit to the capitol.
This time I just wanted to look and take a few pics for the website. Below are those photos and my comments.

...
The capitol is full of history if we just take the time to look.   Our entire state history is carved on the walls...
...
At least the history up to the mid 1930s when the capitol was completed.

...
By now everyone knows the story of Huey Long and his connection to the capitol.

If you are from Louisiana, do you ever look at any other steps besides the 18th?
