The Historic 1840 Red House
Definitely one of Grand Coteau's historic landmarks, this typical Acadian cottage features a halless floorplan and "garconniere" stairs on the front gallery. Mortise and tenon construction was used on this mid-nineteenth century building. Some structural members are hand-hewn and some are straight-sawn, suggesting that the house may have been built with salvaged materials. There is evidence that the house may have been moved to its present site and that it may in fact be half a house. It was not uncommon to settle an estate by dividing the house along with the land. Come and see this historic beauty!
