Exploring Louisiana’s Threatened Coastal Forts

Click here to register in advance for this free Zoom webinar

Join historic preservationist Lindsey Walsworth and photojournalist G. Andrew Boyd to discover the surprising history of Louisiana’s Third System Forts. Walsworth profiled five of these mid-19th century fortifications in Preservation in Print. Boyd’s drone videos and photo essays featuring these forts have appeared on Nola.com and in print. Why were these forts designed and located the way they are? Who lived and worked in them? And why were they abandoned? Hear the stories and learn about efforts to document and preserve these massive but crumbling masonry forts threatened by coastal land loss and sea-level rise.
