Acadian Village, Southwest Lafayette. It is a replica of a Cajun village in the 1800's. It is a beautiful place and was the setting of the movie, "Belizaire the Cajun" by Glen Pitre. It starred Armand Asante. It is worth a visit to see how small south Louisiana communities looked during the last century.
