Shadows on the Teche’
Shadows on the Teche is one of the Deep South's most fabled houses. It was built between 1831 and 1834 for David Weeks, a wealthy planter, on the banks of Bayou Teche. David Weeks, who died in 1834 before his new home was completed, left his widow, Mary Clara, and their six children to move in to the Shadows alone. The personalities, interests, triumphs, and tragedies of Mary Clara and her family are very much a part of the interpretation of the Shadows, which has been furnished to reflect realistically their lifestyle. Located in New Iberia, Louisiana.
