Donaldsonville, Louisiana

Day 948

     Across from where we are camping, on the West Bank of the Mississippi River, is Donaldsonville. In 1806, William Donaldson subdivided a farm which he owned, and platted the city which would adopt his name. The Louisiana legislature incorporated the city on March 25, 1813. For a short period, January 1829 to January 1831, Donaldsonville was the Capital of Louisiana. 

     Strolled through the “historic district”. While there were some unique buildings.

     Most were just old and run down.

     I guess “historic” means “dilapidated”.

  1. You make history interesting!! Yesterday while waiting for Rod’s appt. to be over – (3 hours!!!) I was forced to read everything available. Large Print Readers’ Digest is most interesting. Great info! One was ‘Great American Road Trip’ – send photos and win $ – I thought of you and your great pics.
