For more than two hundred years, this National Historic District founded in 1805 known as Spanish Town’s illustrates the various changes of Baton Rouge’s development. Although many people see Downtown Baton Rouge as one unit, the city is really a series or separate neighborhoods that have grown together over time. Although older than Baton Rouge, few original homes of Spanish Town survived the Civil War, and today, the prevailing architectural styles reflect the early 20th Century when Spanish Town was a thriving University community.
