If you've visited Jackson Square, then you know this building, as it stands right next to the Saint Louis Cathedral.
The Cabildo was built between 1795 and 1799 during Spanish rule in New Orleans. The Louisiana Purchase transfer happened here in 1803 and the building served as the center of New Orleans government until 1853, when it became the Louisiana State Supreme Court headquarters.
Since 1908, it’s been the location of the Louisiana State Museum. The historical treasures inside make it a worthwhile visit to learn the history of Louisiana.
In 1960, the Cabildo was declared a National Historic Landmark.
Handcrafted of 3/4" thick wood in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.
Set it on your desk, bookshelf, mantle or any ledge where you can catch a glimpse during your day to bring back wonderful memories on your New Orleans trip.
Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, perched on the railing enjoying the sunny day.
