They have a good choice of film for info on Louisiana. If you are lucky, you will have the night of music with musicians or the french meeting.

We had visited this site before, but we made a return visit to get the Atchafalya National Heritage Area Passport Book stamp. There is an excellent video presentation regarding the historical relocation of Canadian French by the English in 1700's to Louisiana. Check it out.
