Why locals love it

The massive undertaking of construction, dredging of bayous, and home restoration were accomplished through local carpenters, businessmen, civic organizations, and community volunteers. Even the Army Reservists of the Lafayette area pitched in by building the general store. The result captured a specific moment in time.

Why you should visit it

7 of the 11 buildings are authentic homes of the 19th century donated by the families whose ancestors once occupied them. All homes are remarkable examples of the ingenuity of the early Acadian homebuilders, complete with wooden pegs, mud walls, hand-hewn cypress timbers, and high-peaked roofs. Each was moved piece by piece and carefully restored.
