Opelousas - Perfectly Seasoned

50. Calla-Kerr, c. 1930

April 9, 1930

519 N. Court Street

Constructed solely of Louisiana cypress, this bungalow style home features five bedrooms, a grand foyer and formal dining room. The home is named Calla-Kerr after owner Robbie Sebastien’s favorite canvas flower and after his great-grandfather, Judge Ennis Shaw Kerr, the first District Judge of Opelousas. Of special interest in the home is a four poster Empire style C. Lee bed made in New Orleans in 1864 for his great-great-grandfather, Rudolf Mayer, who invented and patented the first breech loading rifle.
