The museum offers an insight into the early life of the leader of the Secession Convention that opened the Civil War and set up reverberations that are still felt. It is a rare glimpse into the mind of the leaders of early Louisiana.

Reviewed 23 January 2008

I have lived in Lafayette for 13 years. I finally had a chance to visit this fine old house in January 2008.

The price was reasonable and has free parking. You take the tour on your own time. No tourguide. They first show you a film about the family history and describe each portion of the house in the film. After the film you are invited to tour the house on your own.

It takes about an hour to go through (including film). This house was built by the founder of the city of Lafayette, LA
