Louisiana’s Gothic Castle sits high atop the Mississippi River on a bluff in downtown Baton Rouge. The Capitol building was designed by James Dakin, architect, in 1847 and construction completed in 1850. In 1862, the building burned and was left abandoned. The building was restored and enlarged by William Freret, architect, in 1882 and once again was the Statehouse of Louisiana. In 1831 the Seat of government moved to the new Statehouse and the building became known as “The Old State Capitol.
