All English teachers should visit. Read or quote the poem there to feel historical and enjoy the beautiful walk along the Bayou Teche.

We drove up and checked out the statue. It is easy to get to. Takes about a minute to pull in and check it out.

It's located to the side of the church in a small garden area and it's quite nice to look at but it didn't appeal to me very much. It's well made and if you are interested in the story perhaps you would have a better take on it - it's ok but not that special ..

We liked this little statue and the grave stone from the girl whose story was the original of the Evangeline poem. As we had watched a very interesting video about 'Arcadia' whilst in Thibodeaux and again in New Iberia we were definitely interested to see this.

If you're into the Evangeline thing....you need to go to see the statue outside the church. You can drive up and almost park your car right beside it. Simple & quick - more of a 'Roadside America' (app) thing.

There is nothing special about the monument. the whole story was made up to begin with. The saga of the displaced/exiled people exiled to Louisiana is of historical importance to people in Louisiana, but the monument has nothing to do with anything important. For the good people of Louisiana, I apologize to the Dutch visitors who were treated so rudely.

At home I planned a tour for our trip in Louisiana, I found this place in a guide and it looked very nice. I made a copy from their Internet page with directions and opening times. I was a warm and sunny in the end of February 2007 when we entered Louisiana and were on our way to this location.... More
