1. The Louisiana State University Marker
Inscription. The Louisiana State University campus is characterized by distinctive buildings that embrace Italian Renaissance forms and features, including grainy stucco walls, graceful arches and red tile roofs.

The historic campus is an outstanding work of early twentieth century architecture. Most of the original complex was designed by nationally prominent architect Theodore G. Link (1850-1923). The Mediterranean tone is reflected in much of the subsequent campus construction.

In recognition of its place in the history of American architecture, Louisiana State University was entered into the National Register of Historic Places, Department of Interior, as an historic district on September 15, 1988.
 
Erected 1990 by Foundation for Historical Louisiana.
