The Center for Southeast Louisiana Studies is undertaking an assessment and photographic documentation of state-approved historical markers in eastern Louisiana as part of the greater Historical Marker Initiative. All existent markers will be catalogued as to exact location, condition and accuracy. Researchers will detail the commemorated event or place and make recommendations for additional markers needed to fully promote regional history and to protect historical sites threatened by development. email@example.com
