    Getting Permission

    I live in Baker, LA. Near my house is the former site of an early Historical Black College (Leland University). I have been trying to contact every agency or individual I can find connected to the site to get permission to look for artifacts. So far I am coming up empty.

    You will need to contact the current property owner. Only the owner can give you permission to hunt the property.

    Your county tax assessor will have the owners identity and contact information.

    Well, if I have identified the location correctly, the parcel map doesn’t list an owner. Not really sure what that means......

    Unfortunately for you the site seems to be listed on the national historical register.

    Leland College was founded in 1870 as a college for blacks in New Orleans, Louisiana, but was open to all races.[2] After its original buildings burned in 1923, it was relocated near Baker, Louisiana. The school closed in 1960 because of financial difficulties.[3]
    The 20.9 acres (8.5 ha) area of the Baker campus, comprising four contributing properties and one non-contributing building, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 10, 1982.[1][4][5]
    The college facilities were already derelict at the time of listing. In the early 21st century, only the ruins of the two dormitories can be seen faintly through trees. Frame classroom, the President's House, and the Concrete Classrom all disappeared at some time.
