Hilton, Downtown Baton Rouge

On one of my adventures downtown, I was looking for a shady place to stop and sketch (cause you know it gets to easily 100 degrees with humidity) when I stumbled across the newly redesigned Hilton Hotel. A little history on the Hotel, it use to be the Heidelberg and Capital House Hotel and has been fully restored. There still exists the secret tunnel that Governor Huey P. Long used to keep his whereabouts uncertain and the press guessing. The Tunnel remains open as a wine and private dinning experience. I decided to capture this building because of its beauty and historic significance to the city.
