  • Very interesting structure with interesting history. It would be nice to have guided tours or at least a pamphlet to carry as you walk thru. They have video that you watch at the beginning, but you can't remember everything as you walk.
  • Goodfood love it
  • Here, one can experience the real deal in southern charm. This museum and location is not only an excellent place to learn about Lafayette History, but also a most wonderful place to hold a tea, shower or event. Enjoy the beautiful building, grounds, and a stellar experience with event coordination, thanks to the superb management.
  • Love the history! The house tells it's own story..
  • A fun, local museum. I enjoyed learning about Lafayette history and the Mouton family.
