Historic Museums

 The Louisiana Maneuvers & Military Museum, located at Camp Beauregard, tells the story of the massive army maneuvers that prepared the United States for World War II and was centered on several army camps in the Pineville area. Other not-to-miss sites include the Louisiana History Museum in downtown Alexandria; the Tioga Heritage Park & Museum; and the Southern Forest Heritage Museum in Long Leaf, which showcases the oldest complete sawmill facility in the South. Dating from the early 20th century, the complex contains the most complete collection of steam-powered logging and milling equipment thought to be in existence.  www.geauxguardmuseums.com/about-the-museums;  louisianahistorymuseum.org;  www.forestheritagemuseum.org
