St. James Historical Society Cultural & Heritage Center Museum

Dedicated to the preservation of the history of St. James Parish and Louisiana, the St. James Historical Society Cultural & Heritage Center Museum is one of the best ways to experience the charm of St. James Parish.  The museum is filled with artifacts that tell the story of life in the early days of St. James Parish—cypress sawmilling on the Blind River, the history of Lutcher and Moore Cypress Company from which Lutcher got its name, College Point Pharmacy, a miniature of the Olive Jeanette Patrol Boat which used to haul hunters on the Blind River, the 80-year-old Paulina Post Office Building, a working blacksmith shop where demonstrations are given, Perique Tobacco Shed with displays of the processing and curing of tobacco as done by the local Indians 200 years ago.
