Circa 1880

Originally the Iberia House, the Bezus Building was erected circa 1880 on property purchased in 1868 by Laurent Bazus, a native of Vin-En-Bigorre, France. It is considered the oldest existing structure in New Iberia's downtown. Laurent's heirs have preserved this legacy: Aline Bazus Maumus, Laurent's daughter; Francis Maumus Compton and Robert Maumus, Aline's daughter and son; and Aline Compton Porter, Francis's daughter. Variety in tenancy - I.A. Martin's Photography, Nick Frittella's Shoeshop, Betar's Restaurant and Clothing Store, Insurance Agencies, Johnson's Sales Engineering and the local congressional office, among others - explains the building's diverse contribution to Main Street history.Donated by Aline Compton Porter in loving memory of Francis Maumus Compton
