Established during World War I, Camp Beauregard has served as a major Louisiana National Guard training facility since 1921. Today it is still used by the Louisiana National Guard as a logistical base and training base for engineer and aviation units. It also houses the Louisiana Maneuvers Museum. The airport runway was a project of the Louisiana WPA.
