The Landmark

The Calcasieu Parish Historical Preservation Society's prestigious Landmark Award is a decorative wooden plaque that is usually attached to the front of a structure. 
 
This award is given in recognition of homeowners who have restored a historic structure as near as possible to its original look.
 
Among the architectural styles often seen in this area are Queen Anne revival, Eastlake, Colonial revival, bungalow and 20th Century eclectic.

Master List of Landmark Awards

Landmark Awards are presented by the Calcasieu Historical Preservation Society during the annual meeting, generally held in January.  

The properties listed within 2016 were announced at the annual meeting held at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd. This year marks the 31st year of the Landmarks register program. The program was organized by Mavis Raggio in 1986.

Less than 150 sites and properties are on the Landmarks register which recognizes historic sites of merit to the architectural, cultural, social and commercial growth of Calcasieu Parish. Through an invitation and application process, the history of the site is documented and recorded for academic research and inquiry. The selected structures or sites are marked by a distinctive shaped white plaque identifying the structure and documentation is available for review at McNeese University’s Frazar Library Archives.
