Tangipahoa African American Heritage Museum
There are three main buildings. The north building has a dinner theater and storage. The middle building contains the main displays of African American heritage. The south building offers a spacious banquet hall together with multipurpose conference facilities. The Museum is one of 26 sites on the Louisiana African American Heritage Trail as cited by USA Today.
The Museum originated in the 1980s and has incrementally expanded in both displays and community services. A special arena of concentration in the Museum is its collection of data and exhibits on African American veterans of military service. The Museum has a "cooperative endeavor agreement" with Southeastern Louisiana University.
