Louisiana 4-H Museum

Louisiana 4-H started as a corn club in 1908 in Avoyelles Parish.  It grew from 300 boys learning the best way to grow corn to a program that gives more than 240,000 boys and girls in all 64 Louisiana parishes hands-on learning through programs, camps, and workshops.  Through Louisiana 4-H kids learn new and better ways to farm, raise animals, preserve food and improve their home environment.  Louisiana 4-H fosters leadership, independence, generous spirits, and mastery of life skills.

The 1,100-square-foot museum includes all kinds of memorabilia from photographs to awards to clothing items.  Exhibits include a mural of 4-H history milestones; the 4-H Hall of Fame; a 4-H emblem collage of items from around Louisiana; 4-H on Parade which is a 3-D diorama of projects and programs; and Frankie the 4-H Fox, an animatronic puppet show.
