A tour of historic places across Bogalusa and Washington Parish will take place on Saturday, March 12.

After several postponements, the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation (LTHP) in partnership with Bogalusa Rebirth will bring its next Ramble to discover and tour ten unique places representing Bogalusa’s history and culture. Attendees will get to step inside and learn about the history and architecture of sites such as the Sullivan House, City Hall, Coca-Cola Building (a former Louisiana Most Endangered Places site), Bogalusa Railroad Depot, Civil Rights leader Bob Hicks House, and four local churches.

The tour concludes a final stop at The Studio in the Country, where artists such as Stevie Wonder, Kansas, The Neville Brothers, and many more recorded iconic albums and timeless music. Rambles are a great way to explore a new part of Louisiana to learn about different cultures and different aspects of our state’s shared history.

Admission includes access to all tour sites plus a brown bag lunch from The Golden Pear. General admission is $50 per person, $45 for active LTHP members. A $15 rate has been made available for teachers and students attending for a unique learning experience.

Sponsorships are available for companies or individuals and include recognition and blocks of tickets for the event. To learn more, including the tour schedule, visit www.lthp.org/events/bogalusa-ramble. Registration closes Monday, March 7.

Other upcoming events from the Louisiana Trust include the 41st Annual Louisiana Preservation Conference, which will be April 21-22 in Monroe and West Monroe, and a Better Boards Training Workshop from May 20-21 in Baton Rouge.
