List of National Historic Landmarks in Louisiana

List of National Historic Landmarks in Louisiana
This is a complete List of National Historic Landmarks in Louisiana, of which there are 53. The United States National Historic Landmark program is operated under the auspices of the National Park Service, and recognizes structures, districts, objects, and similar resources according to a list of criteria of national significance.[1] The state of Louisiana is home to 54 of these landmarks, spanning a range of history from early to modern times. The most recently designated is the Shreveport Municipal Memorial Auditorium, designated in October, 2008. Cross-reference lists of state historic sites and of national historic sites and other National Park Service areas are included further below. • Poverty Point National Monument • Vicksburg National Military Park (also in Mississippi) Poverty Point National Monument is listed as a National Park Service area although title for the site has not been transferred from Louisiana to the federal government. Otherwise, excepting the El Camino Real de los Tejas trail, these are Federally owned sites and enjoy higher protection than most National Historic Landmarks.
