- For $12, you get one Landmarks Loyalist (individual) membership (a $25 value).

Perched on Bayou St. John, the Louisiana Landmarks Society's Pitot House plays a pivotal role in the organization's preservation of Big Easy history and is known as the sole Creole colonial country house on the bayou open for public perusal. Serving as the headquarters of the preservation association, the nostalgic establishment highlights the early days of settlement life along the Deep South wetlands, bursting with elegant artifacts and genteel bullfrogs dressed in three-piece suits. The house is flanked by a garden teeming with myriad flora and a scenic meadow that hosts a slew of occasions, from romantic dinners to corporate cat cotillion brunches.
Society members enjoy a miscellany of perks, including free year-round admission to the Pitot House and grounds (normally $5–$7 per visit), discounts on gift-shop gear, reduced admission to various Landmarks events such as Friday night "Vino on the Bayou" gatherings, and an important role in safeguarding Louisiana's treasured hotspots. The mailboxes of members are also treated to the "Préservation" newsletter and notices of upcoming lectures and workshops, a welcome change from a steady diet of bills, junk mail, and flattering Post-it notes from the mailman.
