Built for a wealthy sugar planter in 1834, Shadows-on-the-Teche was home to four generations before becoming a National Trust Historic Site. Live Oaks draped with Spanish Moss cast shadows on house, gardens and Bayou Teche. Family furnishings and letters present an authentic "picture of the life" for visitors to this National Historic Landmark.
