Mansfield State Historic Site
The motto of Louisiana State Parks and Mansfield State Historic Site is: “Preservation, Recreation, and Interpretation”. Interpretation is a word commonly used by professionals, which means teaching others about the significance or meaning of an event, a thing, an epoch, or an area through participatory experiences such as hands-on demonstrations, live presentations, tours, and events. Interpretive programs capture a lesson and bring it to life for the participants. Interpretation makes a two dimensional lesson a three dimensional experience.
