8. Old Galilee Baptist Church – 854 Williamson Street

This historical landmark church was built on the site in 1877. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave speeches at Old Galilee in 1958 and 1962, and it is considered the home of school integration in Caddo Parish. Although services are no longer held at the church, plans are underway to develop Old Galilee Baptist Church as a civil rights museum.
