My wife and I stopped here as the owner of the bed and breakfast we were staying at in Breaux Bridge recommended it to us. There is a $4 pp admission. It was not crowded when we were there. We had the tour guide to ourselves. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of this area. You can learn much about the history of the Acadians by visiting here. This park featured an old home from the Creole era as well as a house and outbuildings from the Acadians. The grounds are beautiful and truly historic, being the site of an early 1800's era Creole plantation. There is the original Creole home, plus several Acadian buildings and an Acadian farmstead.
From the Louisiana State Park website:
Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site explores the cultural interplay among the diverse peoples along the famed Bayou Teche. Acadians and Creoles, Indians and Africans, Frenchmen and Spaniards, slaves and free people of color-all contributed to the historical tradition of cultural diversity in the Teche region. French became the predominant language, and it remains very strong in the region today.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's 1847 epic poem Evangeline made people around the world more aware of the 1755 expulsion of the Acadians from Nova Scotia and their subsequent arrival in Louisiana. In this area, the story was also made popular by a local novel based on Longfellow's poem, Acadian Reminiscences: The True Story of Evangeline, written by Judge Felix Voorhies in 1907.
