Nineteen 06

Re-live the history of the "booming cypress industry" in this charming quiet city located along the Lower Atchafalaya River.  Home to the world's largest cypress mill, closing in 1929.  Visit Patterson's Wedell Williams Aviation/Cypress Sawmill State Museum for more history.  Also, home of the "Atchafalaya at Idlewild" Golf Course and the famous Louisiana Shrimp and Petroleum Festival.  This building showcases the most detailed commercial architecture of our city.  Located in the center of the downtown Historic District (building is listed on National Historic Registry).  Adjacent to the newly renovated Morey Park, and next door to the historic Opera House (in the process of renovating).  Access to waterfront with dock/decking.  Totally restored to new condition, with emphasis placed on the many historic features.  Located on the second floor via original restored cypress wood stairway.  The main living area is bright and spacious with 6 large arched "antique wavy glass window panes" with beautiful views.  Video of the history and ongoing restoration is available for viewing.  Conveniently located (estimated hour car ride) from New Orleans/jazz heritage, Lafayette/Cajun country, Baldwin/Chitimacha Casino, and Baton Rouge.  Perfect for day-tripping.
