The Pioneer Heritage Center, LSUS, comprises seven historical structures: the Caspiana House, a raised plantation cottage built in 1856 on the Hutchinson’s Caspiana Plantation; the Thrasher House, a log double-pen dog trot; a detached kitchen; the Doctor’s Office; the Webb & Webb Commissary; a single pen log Blacksmith Shop; and the Riverfront Mission Chapel.

In and around these structures the Pioneer Heritage Center at LSU Shreveport will host Pioneer Day on Saturday, October 10, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Pioneer Day gives insight into the intimate home life of settlers and natural environment in which they struggled to survive.

The event is a "history laboratory" where people can see how the pioneers built their first homes, provided for their families, and how their diverse beliefs and customs contributed to the cultural mosaic that is Louisiana.
