Historic Sites of Cajun Country

Southern Louisiana’s Acadia Attractions


Shadows-on-the-Teche

Shadows-on-the-Teche Historic Home & Gardens

There’s no better way to experience the Creole State than exploring the historic sites of Cajun Country.

Set primarily in southern Louisiana, Cajun Country cities include Lafayette, Eunice, Donaldsonville, and more. And the best part: Nothing but incredible creole cuisine between every landmark.

Cajun Country is not far from Plantation Country and the New Orleans metro area – in fact the three can overlap.

Historic plantations in southern Louisiana include the Arlington Plantation House in Franklin, Live Oak Plantation in Abbeville, and the Houmas House Plantation and Gardens near Donaldsonville.

Speaking of, be sure to explore the many historic sites of Donaldsonville, including museums, Civil War grounds, and stops along the African American Heritage Trail. Be sure to visit the Historic Donaldsonville Museum and the River Road African American Museum for the complete Donaldsonville experience – all just outside of Baton Rouge.

Cajun culture comes in the form of food, yes, but don’t forget music. Head to Eunice for the Cajun Music Hall of Fame and Museum – a free cultural center open Tuesday through Sunday. Check out artifacts and memorabilia of Cajun musicians and venues, all organized by the Cajun French Music Association.

Founded in 1821, Lafayette is the fourth largest city in the state, and a hub for creole culture and Louisiana landmarks. Visit the stunning Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist – built in 1916 and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places – or check out Vermilionville, the Acadian Village, and the Acadian Cultural Center at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.
