When some people think of Louisiana, they think of New Orleans and its Mardi Gras, or of Cajuns and their food, while others think of Louisiana's famous politicians. And when they think of Louisiana politicians, what comes to mind? Well, Winnfield of course! And if that's not what comes to mind, it certainly should be. You see, Winnfield is considered the birthplace of politics in Louisiana and is the home of the Louisiana Political Museum & Hall of Fame. It's also the birthplace of three Louisiana Governors - Huey P. Long, Earl K. Long, and O.K. Allen.
