Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the park's circa 1815 plantation home, Maison Olivier, houses an exhibit which interprets the history of French-speaking cultures along Bayou Teche. This National Historic Landmark is an excellent example of a Raised Creole Cottage. A reproduction Acadian Farmstead, situated along the bank of Bayou Teche, is an example of how a typical single-family farm would have appeared around 1800. This site includes the family home with an outdoor kitchen and bread oven, slave quarters and a barn. Cattle typical of those raised by the Creoles and Acadians at that time are in the pasture, adjacent to the barn.
