The West Feliciana Historical Society played a great part in leading the way for the preservation of the Historic District in St. Francisville.
In 1970, the Society acquired the Weydert’s Old Hardware Store to establish the old store as a local history museum called West Feliciana Historical Society Museum. It was and continues to be an interpretive museum of local history.
In 2014, the mission was modified to preserve and promote West Feliciana historically, culturally, and architecturally through education and stewardship. Presently, the museum workers or clerks field a variety of questions: some historical, some genealogical, and some just simply questions asking directions or where to eat, visit, or stay the night.
