Did You Know...

That the Archives Department of the McNeese Library has worked hard to digitize over 3,000 photographs of our area? The photographs, purchased or donated from a variety of generous sources, document McNeese, Lake Charles, and the Imperial Calcasieu region from 1890's to the present. To view this collection online, please follow this link: Historic Photographs of Southwest Louisiana

The McNeese Collection is part of a larger collection of digitized photographs that tell the history of our state. Organized by the State Library of Louisiana, the LOUISiana Digital Library contains photographs, maps, manuscript materials, books, oral histories, and more that document Louisiana's history and culture.
