Shadows on the Teche
Shadows-on-the-Teche is a brick antebellum home constructed between 1831 and 1834 by sugar planter David Weeks and his wife, Mary Clara Conrad. Now a museum and property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Classical Revival-style Shadows on the Teche is open to the public. It features eight white columns across the front facade, over 17,000 paper documents, original photographs, and furnishings.
Shadows-on-the-Teche is a great place to visit. There are thousands of original documents spanning four generations of the same family who lived in the house.
Our guide was friendly and knew her history. We felt free to ask questions and express opinions. We didn't feel like just another group of tourists.
I absolutely recommend this site to others. It was a great learning experience and the cost wasn't that great. It's worth that and much more.
The Shadows is definitely a don't miss on your trip to South Louisiana.
