Alexandre Mouton House and Lafayette Museum

Alexandre Mouton House and Lafayette Museum Review

Built in 1800 as the maison dimanche, or "Sunday house," of town founder Jean Mouton, this galleried town house with a mid-19th-century addition now preserves local history. The older section is an excellent example of early Acadian architecture and contains artifacts used by settlers. The main museum contains Civil War–era furnishings and memorabilia and an exhibit on Mardi Gras.
