The Spring Street Museum is located in one of the oldest buildings in Shreveport. It was built as Tally's Bank in 1865 on one of the Shreve Town Company's original lots. The entire building has undergone careful restoration, inside and out. The ground floor retains the original wood floor, woodwork and bank vault. The building's exterior features the only remaining example of Victorian cast-iron grillwork in Northwest Louisiana.
The Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts that are featured in rotating exhibits showcasing the life and customs of the area as they have evolved since the 1800's. Recent exhibits include: "Celebrating the New Century, Shreveport in 1900," "Digging Up Shreveport's Past, The Archaeology of Shreveport," and "The Musical Heritage of Shreveport."
The museum is owned by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Louisiana and is operated by the Shreveport Committee.
