This booklet highlights the best practices for hardening historic homes in Louisiana, including anchoring structures, floodproofing, etc. Aimed at owners of residential properties, the booklet also offers valuable insights for local historic commission members, city government staff and professionals in related fields.
By saving an important part of our heritage, the Division of Historic Preservation energizes Louisiana’s cultural economy. We help local craftsmen, artists, and lovers of history find places to live, work, and play. Although we strive to preserve the best examples of our state’s architecture, we also focus upon buildings representing the forces that shaped Louisiana’s history and culture. To make these things happen, we actively assist property owners to apply for
National Register status and qualify for the federal and state tax incentives that often make the restoration of historic buildings possible.
