While you are on the site, browse the various shops just a few steps away. Historic Acadian style homes have been restored to house specialty shops. Discover unique gifts; some hand-crafted, antiques, art, pottery, etchings, homemade candles, etc. to take home or share.

For a stroll back into history, visit our “Tractor Barn.” On display are antique tractors, farm implements and tools, including a blacksmith forge which was dismantled from Donaldson Plantation and rebuilt with the original fire bricks. The blacksmith shop is functional and is used during the annual Oktoberfest!

Our two village celebrities (live alligators) are “Big Boy” and “Nubby.”  Come watch us feed the alligators from April to September on Sundays at 4 p.m.
