Significance: By the middle of the nineteenth century, the Louisiana sugar industry had become one of the major economic forces of the state, and in 1882 it was deemed necessary to create a separate exchange for the handling of transactions. A charter was granted on March 6, 1883, and shortly thereafter the building on North Front and Bienville Streets was erected.
