Want to relive your misspent youth? Check out our newest local history database, the Gris Gris Archive 1973-79 (the golden years of Gris Gris). In it you’ll find articles and commentary about BR, state politics, the people and the events that made Baton Rouge one of the coolest cities in the South. Yes, BR really WAS cool back then.
Revisit the stores where you shopped (remember the General Store?), the concerts you went to (Rolling Stones!!!), and the people (hippies) who were making news. The Gris Gris Archive is an exciting blast from the past and great fun to read if you spent your high school and college years in Baton Rouge. Check it out, man.
