We enjoyed learning about the Weeks family and their descendants. The home is beautifully restored and staff is knowledgeable about the history. One price for the home and garden. Family is buried on the property. Steep stairs so if you have problems with mobility, take care.

I absolutely love the Shadows...I live in New Iberia but still bring my kids on the tour just to enjoy the history. The guides are very friendly and informative.

This was a lovely historic home to visit. The items that were original to the home made the tour so interesting. A true look into life in the 1800's. The house and grounds are both worth touring. We spent several hours wandering the grounds after the tour. Our tour guide was great, she gave a great tour and answered all... More

A wonderful historic 1800's mansion. The best part, other than the sweet young lady that gave the tour was that the furnishings were all authentic to the home. Beautiful grounds.

This tour started with a short film before going to the main house. The film and tour guide explained with great detail about the history of the home and the family whom lived there. You get to see many of the rooms and most of the things are original to the house. After you tour the home you are free... More

Tour this historic site to get a taste of what a 19th century tie house living was like. Artifacts include what a lady of the house would have for medical treatments of the time, maintaining a well-sticker kitchen, and more. Any student of any age would enjoy the tour with the docent.
