“Beautiful shadows!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The city of New Iberia provides a wonderful tour of the home and property located on Bayou Teche, known as 'Shadows on the Teche'. The enormous oaks, with spanish moss draping from every limb, cast beautiful shadows over the Bayou. The tour is rich with history pertaining to the Weeks family and how they came about building/living in the mansion. A must see for anyone traveling to or through New Iberia.

“Worth the visit to this historic home”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

This is a great home and the tour was average. The best part is that almost all of the furnishings are original to the owners which is rare. It gives you a real feel for how the families lived.

“A most interesting home and family”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

The matriarch of the Weeks family kept such meticulous records that every detail of life in that era is available for historical review. Our guide was very well informed.

“Worth the visit”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

It was neat to tour this location with my family (including an 11 and 7 year old). Very cool that they had mostly family things inside the house. Grounds are real neat on bayou.
