Historic Louisiana Missouri

Historic Louisiana, Missouri

Historic Louisiana, Missouri, located about two hours north of St. Louis, lies along the banks of the Mississippi River, a river that is intertwined with the history of Louisiana. Several streets and districts in downtown Louisiana are listed on the National Register of Historical Places. The downtown business area, called the Georgia Street Historic District, has 54 historic buildings, mostly of Italianate or Victorian architectural style. It is also said that Louisiana has "the most intact Victorian Streetscape in the state of Missouri." Settlers first came to Louisiana in 1808. It wasn't until 1818 that the town was officially laid out and then incorporated in 1848. Originally established by the French when it was part of the Louisiana Territory, it is the oldest town in Pike County Missouri.
