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.
