Leatherwood Museum - Allen Parish Louisiana

Leatherwood Museum

Step back in time and take a gander at some genuine pieces of Allen Parish history from the good ol’ pioneerin’ days. There’s a whole heap of real fine treasures in this place now, but ‘fore it was a fancy museum, it was a hospital, boarding house, and even a family home.

The house was built in 1888. Its exhibits include period furniture from the turn of the century, a matching set of tiger oak bed and dresser, a doll collection, military room featuring the War Maneuvers, an agriculture exhibit, and a walking stick made from a tree from President Jackson’s Hermitage Farm in Tennessee. Be sure to check out the Louisiana native wildlife habitat exhibit.  Check your knowledge with the paw print matching game.
