Built Prior to 1805

The Jean Charles Germain Bergeron House, one of the oldest surviving Acadian dwellings in Louisiana, was moved to the Rural Life Museum in 2005 from the east bank of Bayou Lafourche, three miles from Labadieville in Lafourche Parish.

The Acadian structure was built by first generation French immigrants from Nova Scotia, Canada. They incorporated traditional Acadian features such as a Norman style truss roof, and bousillage-entre-poteaux with hand split cypress found locally.

Although the structure was named for the Germain Bergeron family, the earliest known owners of the house, the Marcellin Borne family lived in the house for 54 years, followed by the Henry Pitre family for 70 years.

The building was graciously donated by Mr. and Mrs. Jack Wise in 2005.
