Spring Street Museum

Description

Take a trip back in time with us to see what life was like when Shreveport was young and taking. Built as Tally’s Bank, the Spring Street Historical Museum is housed in one of the oldest remaining buildings in downtown Shreveport. The building has undergone careful restoration and serves as one of Northwest Louisiana’s few remaining example of New Orleans-style cast-iron grill work. The original vault retains its elaborately painted door and houses a permanent exhibit on the history of Shreveport. Since 1976, the building has been owned and operated by the Shreveport Committee of the National Society of Colonial Dames in Louisiana who oversaw its restoration and placement on the National Register of Historic Places. It currently operates under the Secretary of State’s Museum Program.
