Centenary State Historic Site
Originally opened as the College of Louisiana in 1826, the school occupied an old courthouse and other buildings in the town of Jackson. The college steadily grew and two dormitories were built on new property in 1832 and 1837. The West Wing, the latter of these two buildings, remains today. In 1979 Centenary State Historic Site was added to the National Register of Historic Places, an honorary designation for significant historic sites.
