Built in the late 1700's it sits natural ridge created by the melting of glaciers during the last Ice Age.
It has the exact style and floor plan that Perilloux Plantation house had and I can walk through it with my eyes closed. Perilloux Plantation house was my grandfather's and then my father's. It was destroyed in 1973 by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, along with 43 other houses in the town, to make way for a new levee. People were given 72 hours to vacate, then the houses were bulldozed. This house, as was Perilloux Place, is built of solid cypress with mud between the walls.
It is now open for tours and demonstrations of cooking in the 1800's and other arts and crafts of that period.
