The Cajun Village has many buildings, almost all of which are restored and occupied by one boutique shop or another. However, there is one historic vernacular building tucked back into the woods by the Gator Habitat: the Graves House that has yet to be restored. Originally built in 1910, it was moved up Hwy. 22 from Darrow, LA a few years ago. This week, we began our latest restoration project, starting with tearing out the old, rotten floorboards and replacing them with old pine tongue-and-groove floorboards salvaged from another historic Louisiana building that was being torn down. Just a few photos today, but I will update y’all on the progress over the next few months. Going to be a fun project!
