809 S. Court Street

Built by St. Landry Parish Judge William Charles Perrault and his wife Amanda Lastrapes Perrault, this house contains a parlor, living and dining rooms, four bedrooms, two porches and six fireplaces. It houses a rare, circa 1840s, six-foot beveled edge “diamond dust” mirror. The persimmon tree located in front of the home is over 100 years old and is believed to be one of the oldest producing persimmon trees in the state.
