House's at the Best
Mar 2021
This is a beautiful place to drive through if you're wanting to just go site seeing. I've driven through many times an never get tired of seeing it again. They just built a new house I want to go see now that it is finished. Those old homes have been around for a long time.

Where is It?

The address listed doesn't take you to the houses. Little disappointing as I would have liked to see the homes

Drive By

Took a detour at Lake Charles to do the N. LakeShore Drive. Free drive looking at how the other half live waterfront interesting for rest stops. Worth visiting if in transit.
All on the Creole Nature Trail whilst your there.

Attractive

Large houses in good sized plots with an up-market European feel. None of the tat usually associated with American residential areas.

Lovely to look at!

Walking or riding tours of the District can be very entertaining as there is a variety of architecture, landscaping and street life in this largely residential district. It lacks however a hospitality core of cafes or stopping-off places where you can get a drink or snack--for that you have to go downtown for its many offerings. Beautiful trees and flowers in season!

Back to Olden Days

Want to step back in time and see beautiful old houses on acreage by the shore of the lake? Such a great neighborhood. I would love to have a pier into the lake like they do!

Amazing step into the past...
Nov 2017
We enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the period rooms and houses. I learned quite a bit reading the signs. I definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area.

Depends on what you want to see
May 2018 • Couples
As previous reviewers have mentioned, definitely stop at the visitors center to pick up the booklet listing the historical district facts. This is a self guided tour either by walking or driving. To walk you will need to locate several different parking spots as there are various locations. The homes are either private homes or businesses, so all you are able to see is the outside and read the description in the booklet.
We ended up driving around the area, which is difficult when the passenger is trying to give addresses and read the facts. Walking might be the best route to take depending on your time, what you want to see, and weather conditions.

take the addresses with you or you won't find anything
Aug 2017 • Family
it's the only thing to see that it worth it. Tere are many old houses from 1880 to 1930 here and there around the city center. It's nice to take a look but you got to look the website to know where they are (mostly on 2/3 streets)

Love the houses!
May 2017 • Family
We always enjoy historic districts. Love the old houses! Pick up your brochure at the visitor's center or download the informative app to your phone. We did seem to crisscross a bit but we did see some beautiful homes along the way.
