With the help of the President's office, the Cate family descendents, and multiple institutional departments, the Center established the Cate Exhibit located on the first floor of the Sims Memorial Library. This permanent installation demonstrates the influence of Charles Emery Cate and his wife, Mertie Ann Waterman Cate, on the development of Hammond and its surrounding environs.
The Cate Exhibit showcases the many businesses C. E. Cate created which transformed a small, cross-roads community into a prosperous town. Additionally, the exhibit highlights the work of Mertie Ann Waterman Cate in developing one of the chief religious institutions in Hammond, Grace Memorial Episcopal Church. We encourage you to visit this exhibit to learn more about the Cate family legacy and their many contributions to the city of Hammond.
The Center for Southeast Louisiana Studies preserves and promotes the history and the cultures of Louisiana's Florida Parishes, southwestern Mississippi, and surrounding areas through scholarly research, lectures, and publishing.
