DISCOVER LAGRANGE:

THE GLOBAL CITY

Explore historic downtown LaGrange to get a taste of the town’s eclectic blend of history and innovation. Be sure to stop by the downtown area’s several antique shops to find some treasures to take home with you! Stop by the Legacy Museum to learn more about the history of the area and read the stories of some of the places you’ll visit in the coming days. Tour the antebellum home of Bellevue Mansion, an 1800s estate that is now open to visitors. You’ll get lost in beautiful artwork during your visit to the LaGrange Art Museum, enjoying this multilevel museum housed in a former jail.
In the heart of historic downtown, Legacy Museum on Main is home to exhibits featuring the history of LaGrange. Featured items range from ancient artifacts, like a soapstone bowl believed to be 11,000 years old, to more “recent” historic artifacts from LaGrange’s rich textile and railroad history. While you’re there, be sure to check out the world’s oldest cotton bale on display within the museum!
Bellevue, a stately antebellum home, was built by Benjamin Harvey Hill for his wife, Caroline. Seeing this beautiful home for yourself will bring to life the stories of LaGrange’s first residents and how they lived. You’ll be reminded of a time when the pace of life was slower and attention to detail created beautiful environments which still foster a sense of peace and tranquility.
The LaGrange Art Museum is housed in the iconic 1892 jail building and is filled with dynamic exhibitions by renowned and local artists. Collections of high caliber and visually-tantalizing artwork fills the galleries, making the museum a treat for visitors. Give yourself plenty of time to explore this multilevel museum, which prides itself on being free to the public.
