Slide 9: Shadows-on-the-Teche


Located in New Iberia, Louisiana, on the banks of the Bayou Teche in the heart of Cajun Country, The Shadows was built as the home of sugar planter David Weeks. Four generations of the Weeks family lived at The Shadows from 1834 until 1958. The site houses the Weeks Family Papers, a collection of more than 17,000 letters, photographs, and receipts. The documents, which were preserved in trunks in the attic, provide a rich look at the life of a true Southern plantation house.
