The Acadian Memorial

The Acadian Memorial is located at 121 South New Market Street in St. Martinville Lousiana.  On the date of my visit, the memorial was closed for flood damage repair.  No wonder the flood of last August reached the building, the memorial sits on the bank of the Bayou Teche.  I walked around and took a few photos.  With time to spare I almost convinced myself to visit St Martin de Tours Catholic Church - a block away - and ask for some records that have been on my Research Log for far too long.  The Diocese in Lafayette had been promising to post the records online, and I was still waiting.  But in the end I found a little 'hole in the wall' place that makes fantastic fried pork chops and my tummy won out.
