Jimmie Davis Tabernacle

Built on the site of the late-Governor's family home, Jimmie Davis Tabernacle encapsules the memory of Governor Jimmie Davis, who was born and raised in Jackson Parish. Governor Davis held office from 1944-48 and 1960-64. On the Tabernacle site, the Governor's family home still sits and visitors may look inside transporting them back in time. Governor Davis's resting place is at the Jimmie Davis Tabernacle Cemetery. Governor Davis, sometimes referred to as "the Singing Governor," was inducted to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. His most notable single is "You Are My Sunshine," which is also Louisiana's state song.
