Shadows-on-the-Teche

Louisiana

317 East Main Street
New Iberia, LA 70560
United States

This 1834 plantation home and gardens on the banks of Bayou Teche was home to the Weeks family for four generations before becoming a National Trust site in 1958. Letters found in trunks in the attic provide documentation for tours, which give an authentic picture of life on a Louisiana sugar plantation, particularly during the Civil War years and the 1863 occupation of the site.
