Alexandre Mouton House, 1122 Lafayette Street, Lafayette, Lafayette Parish, LA



2013 Charles E. Peterson Prize, First Place
Significance: The Alexandre Mouton House was home to the first Democratic Governor of Louisiana. The original house, Maison Dimanche (or Sunday House), is one of the oldest surviving structures in the area. From its original French construction to its many renovations and additions, the Alexandre Mouton House is an architectural embodiment of the cultural exchange and evolution of the region. Each alteration is architecturally indicative of local growth and diversification with a growing influence from Anglo-Saxon culture. The evident transition from traditional Acadian design to Greek Revival Style and an eventual Italianate décor reveals an important architectural documentation of the evolution of style in South Louisiana.
