Parlange Plantation

Location: Pointe Coupee Pa., LA
Constructed: 1750

History: Built in 1750 by the Marquis Viscent de Ternant, Parlange was constructed of bousilliage (mud, moss and deer hair) and cypress set over a hand-made brick raised basement. The plantation home is one of the finest examples of French Colonial architecture remaining in Louisiana and the country today. The home remains in the possession of the Marquis' descendents, the Parlange family. This National Historic Landmark features magnificent furnishings and paintings which are original to the home. Parlange is the most readily identified monument of Pointe Coupee's legendary history. Parlange can be found on False River Road five miles southwest of New Roads.
