Opelousas - Perfectly Seasoned

37. Veazie-Pavy Home, c. 1905

April 9, 1905

130 W. Vine Street

Edward Veazie built this Queen Anne Victorian style home in 1905 at a cost of $5,000.00. His daughter Marie Aline, and husband Paul Pavy, later owned the home. Built with Louisiana cypress, it features a rare hand carved cypress staircase. On the exterior, brick columns support the triple wood columns around the home. Of interest is the brass-cupped pitched roof over the domed section of the hom, and the frescoes found in the gables are hammered aluminum. Paul Pavy was the brother of State District Judge Benjamin Pavy, who was gerrymandered out of office in 1936 by his political rival, Huey P. Long. One of Pavy’s sons-in-law, Dr. Carl Austin Weiss, was the alleged assassin of Long.
