Stopped on our way out of town. It is part of the La State Museum do there is no admission fee. It is self guided and is very interesting, worth a stop on your way in or out of town.

Learn a little about Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court E.D. White and his family and childhood home. Totally free state historic site. Walk the small grounds and tour the home. Great staff. Easy

Nothing special but is a good start point before to go to more popular places. It's free and nice. Nothing special inside but you could learn a lot about White family
