Side Trips from New Orleans Sights


Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site

Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site Review

Shaded by giant live oaks draped with Spanish moss, this 157-acre park has picnic tables and pavilions and early Acadian structures. The on-site museum traces the history of the Acadians and their settlement along the Bayou Teche in the early 1800s. The modest house was built in 1815 of handmade bricks, and it contains Louisiana antiques. A one-hour tour includes many interesting details about life on the plantation.
