The tour starts across the street with a video. A tour guide takes you across the street to the house and the tour is great. Afterwards you are welcomed to walk around the grounds.

We love old houses and this was a great one to visit. Learned a lot about the house and the history of that time. Guide was very knowledgeable.

Super interesting! The "pack rat" tendencies of the Shadows' mistress were as amazing as her home! We cousins kept saying, "Can't you just imagine playing here as a child? Wouldn't this have been fun?" Lots of "scope for the imagination" to quote L.M. Montgomery.

My cousins and I had a lovely tour of this place. Audrey -our guide- was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions we had. To see what life was life so many years ago and the history of the Weeks family and how they impacted the area. A very pretty house and grounds to tour. Well worth the price we... More

This was my second visit. My first was when I was a kid. I had vague memories but knew I wanted to visit again. The preservation is phenomenal. The tour guide was a sweet lady that answered all of our questions for the small group. It's a definite stop if you are in New Iberia. This is a wonderful piece... More

This is a must see in New Iberia and is definitely the one antebellum home you want to tour. Not only beautiful but the tour is informative, interesting and historically accurate.

The mansion is beautiful. It is quite unique, in that is has a lot of original pieces still in it. Many other plantations were burned or looted, so most open for tours have reproduction pieces. It is on a gorgeous spot next to the bayou. The property is full of moss-draped live oak. There are many wonderful photo ops outside,... More

For a reasonable price there's a video in an air-conditioned room in a building across the street, followed by a guided tour of a remarkable house, which stayed in the hands of one family from 1834 to 1958. Plenty of history and interesting items. Unlike many other homes. Since this one stayed in the family for so long, almost all... More
