Lafayette Visitor Enterprise Fund Award

The Lafayette Museum was the recipient of a grant funded by the Lafayette Visitor Enterprise
Fund, a program of Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission.
After receiving a generous grant from LCVC in 2018, Sparks Engineering, INC conducted
a detailed assessment of the house to recommend measures for proper rehabilitation
and preservation. Many issues have been previously addressed through the generosity of the
Lafayette Visitor Enterprise Fund.
Remaining items of “concern” of the museum include replacing sill beams of Sunday House
porch; porch pier foundations that have become compromised and need replacing or
rebuilding; and deterioration of steps and porch floorboards.
The commitment of the Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission to preserving the
Lafayette Museum historic landmark is greatly appreciated by the Board of the Lafayette
Museum Association and by all in Acadiana who value historic preservation.
