DeQuincy Town Hall Museum board members presented a slide show that was put together by King Architect Company at Monday’s City Council meeting. They requested a vote of approval to permit the board members to seek fundraisers to include grants, locally, statewide and nationally, for restoration and renovations of the Museum.
A brief history of the building was given: The City’s first jail was built around 1910 and the Dispatcher’s Room was housed within the Town Hall building. The name of the project is Law Enforcement Museum, which will be the first in the State of Louisiana. Also the old Fire Truck Bay will also be renovated into an Event Center. A kitchen and storage area are also incorporated into the plan along with restroom facilities.
