Historic Places
The U.S. Department of the Interior supervises selection to the National Register of Historic Places. To qualify, a building must be at least 50 years old and have played a historic role in a community or demostrate a unique architectural style.

The photograph is of the old Grand Theatre in Thibodaux, taken in the 1940s. The theater, on the corner of West Fourth and Green streets, was a focal point for the community in its heyday. The theater was torn down in the summer of 1995 to make way for a parking lot.
