Since I’m gearing up to give an exciting presentation at this years American Association of State and Local History annual meeting, news of new regional history museum buildings hits a nail on the head. Add to that a strong affection for a good Hall of Fame (I once flirted with the idea of joining the team at the Tennis Hall of Fame) and the Louisiana State Sports Hall of Fame and Regional History Museum really gets the blood flowing. Combining two institutions in one is great… as done very well in Kansas City where the Jazz Hall and Negro Leagues Baseball Museum share a space.
The Louisiana State Sports Hall of Fame and Regional History Museum will open its doors in fall of 2011. Trahan Architects handled the design. More info at ArchDaily.
