Monroe, Shreveport & More Bayou State Sites

Memorials, museums, and historic districts are dense throughout northern Louisiana. This is thanks to cities like Shreveport, Delhi, Monroe, and more.

Founded in 1836, Shreveport is Louisiana’s third largest city. Set along the Red River, Shreveport is the second city in the state with the most historic sites – running just behind New Orleans.

Check out Louisiana landmarks like the Caspiana House on the Louisiana State University campus, the colorful Fairfield Historic District, and the must-see Shreveport Municipal Memorial Auditorium.

Both a U.S. National Historic Landmark and on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the Shreveport Municipal Memorial Auditorium was built in 1929, and features historic and haunted tours.

Other Louisiana landmarks pepper the northern part of the state, including the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens – built in 1913 – in Monroe, and the Mansfield State Historic Site in Mansfield. Set in northeastern Louisiana, the small town of Delhi is home to the Downtown Delhi Historic District – found on the National Register of Historic Places.

Downtown Delhi Historic District

Comprised of 21 historic buildings, the Downtown Delhi Historic District in the Richland Parish of northern Louisiana. Make your way to downtown Delhi to stroll past these wonderful pieces of history, at the intersection of US Highway 80 and Highway 17.

The wonderful town of Delhi dates back to the American Civil War when many refugees stayed here, while General Ulysses S. Grant made his move into Northern Louisiana. Not only is the town rich in history, it's also the birthplace of Country Music star Tim McGraw.

Mansfield State Historic Site

Located in the DeSoto Parish of northern Louisiana, the Mansfield State Historic Site preserves the site of the Battle of Mansfield of 1864. The battlefield is set just a few miles south of Mansfield.

Visitors will get the opportunity to view authentic Confederate artillery, as well as commemorative sites like the General Alfred Mouton Monument and the “Spirit of the Confederacy” sculpture. Be sure to check out the Mansfield Battlefield Museum for more insight.
