Downtown’s treasure trove of Shreveport history, the Spring Street Museum, is once again open! Regular hours are Tuesday- Saturday, 10am- 4pm.
The small museum has an oversized collection of items ranging from the founding of Shreve Town, and later Shreveport, to the present. Interactive displays allow you to scroll through photos and hear accounts of a range of topics and the upstairs ‘parlor’ gives the feel of life in the 1890s. Changing exhibits feature items found throughout the city – from Civil War items to rare bottles to items from the great Yellow Fever epidemic in 1873.
The LSUS Foundation plans to kick off the reopening with an event on Thursday, July 22 that will combine fun and fundraising. Dr. Cheryl White will lead those assembled in a Shreveport History Trivia contest, complete with cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are $75 and are limited to the first 30. Prizes will be given!
Tickets can be purchased here.
