Surviving the Civil War and the Reconstruction Period, Shadows on the Teche is one of Louisiana's outstanding Antebellum homes. Now owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Iberia Parish plantation home is in outstanding condition, having undergone a series of repair and restoration projects. Not only is this remarkable sugar plantation home well preserved, but an extensive collection of the family’s papers have been saved. Last of Weeks-Hall lineage, William Weeks-Hall donated nearly 17,000 documents, including his family's letters, invoices and photographs to the trust.
