Stately, slender pine trees tower over the now-quiet green grounds of old Centenary College. The school was a center of activity in the mid-1800s filled with college students. Time and circumstances have altered the college, but a glimpse of its character is still evident on its beautiful campus. Tour an 1837 college dormitory and Victorian professor's cottage on the original site of the oldest existing institution of higher education in the State of Louisiana.
