What to know

The uniqueness of this park is in its preservation: all six historic buildings stand in their original 19th-century locations. Built on a hill to overlook and welcome Black River steamboat traffic, the 1888 courthouse contains exhibits interpreting the commerce and culture of Lawrence County from Reconstruction through the early 20th century and is free to the public. Guided tours by knowledgeable interpreters are available in the remaining historical structures, including a log house, school, church, and jail. Popular among families, Powhatan bridges the past to the present. Located on Hwy. 25, this park is worthy of a stop. Lake Charles and Davidsonville are within 15 miles, making it possible to visit three state parks in a day.
