BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Fort Pike State Historic Site will be closed to the public on Friday due to the filming of a major motion picture.
The fort, set on a 94-acre site, was built shortly after the War of 1812 to defend navigation channels leading into the City of New Orleans.
State officials say the site will reopen on Saturday, for normal operating hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
