Gathering of General Information and Pictures of some of the earliest Acadian and Creole homes.
Louisiana Acadian Homes & Their History
This book is notinteded as an architectural study or formal historical treatise. Rather, it is the gathering of general information on, and pictures of, some of the earliest Acadian and Creole houses in Louisiana. We have not covered the whole state. These houses are mostly from the South Louisiana area. Some are significantly important in the heritage of Louisiana's Acadians. All of the houses were not built by Acadians exiled from Nova Scotia. Some are the work of home builders who married into the Acadian families and other builders who just liked the design of the Acadian houses. This book is presented for the enjoyment of the general public and for those who are especially interested in their Acadian heritage.
