Congratulations! Lafayette Planning Commission approved Lafayette s Comprehensive Plan on June 10, Most of us know the economic benefits of preserving our cultural and historic assets, and we applaud the policies in the Plan. In particular, we applaud the specific policies calling for the preservation of our city s historic central core, the Downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods. Our historic central core neighborhoods are rich with stories of early development as well as narratives about several early families whose feats created Vermilionville and whose histories formed its culture. Beginning in the early 1800s, several fortunate elements formed the shape of our city as it expanded beyond downtown: Bayou fur trading post at Pinhook Road, hard-working people, ample yields from cattle, sugarcane, cotton and corn, and later in the 1800s, the railroad depot, the selection of Lafayette for South Louisiana Industrial Institute, and successful strategies promoting Lafayette as the hub-city of Acadiana Learning Presentations Saturday 28 Feb 2015 Les Vingt Quatre Video Premier at Alexandre Mouton House page 2 Lafayette Comprehensive Plan calls for policies that promote smart growth while protecting our historic central core.

13 Preservation Commission Historic properties ADDED IN 2014 Register of Historic Properties SAINT PAUL CONVENT 518 Hopkins Street Local Historic Property #97 Built: 1919 Style: American Foursquare Designated: May 15, 2014 Saint Paul Convent was built in 1919 for a religious order, the Sisters of the Holy Family. The historic significance of this building includes Marie Henriette Delille, a fourth-generation free woman of color, and founder of the religious order. Holy Family Sisters moved to Lafayette in 1903, built the building and began teaching classical Catholic education to African- Americans in Lafayette. The children learned academics and music. Previously, schools for African-American students taught only basic education for domestic and manual labor jobs. Marie Henriette Delille and co-founders of the religious order, Juliette Gaudin and Josephine Charles, were dedicated to the education of African-Americans. They also bravely spoke out against the system of plaçage, a contractual extra-marital arrangement between young women of color and married wealthy white men. They were opposed to Plaçage, because it was a violation of the Catholic Sacrament of Holy Matrimony. GOOD HOPE CHAPEL 301 E. Convent Street Local Historic Property #98 Built: 1950 Style: Gothic Revival Designated: May 15, 2014 In 1950, Our Lady of Good Hope Chapel was built by the first African American Catholic Parish, Saint Paul the Apostle Church, serving parishioners living in Freetown, Port Rico and Mills Addition historic neighborhoods. Prior building the Good Hope Chapel, Catholic services were held in the historic, Good Hope Hall, located behind the Chapel. _Of significant importance to Lafayette is the history of the Freetown neighborhood a history beginning years before the sale of the Louisiana Purchase to the United States. Prior to joining the U. S., when it was legal for slaves to purchase their freedom with the exchange of either work or goods, communities of free persons of color like Freetown, emerged throughout the area. By the end of the Civil War, the many freed persons of color who had long settled in Freetown, graciously shared with their newly-freed neighbors, the knowledge of how to make a living. These original Freetown families included the Martins, James, Moutons, Figaros, Cocos, and others whose influence was significant to the development of Acadiana. Histories of all buildings on the Lafaytte Historic Register can be found in the book: Lafayette City-Parish Register of Historic Places Purchase for $30 at LCG Planning Zoning & Development, or call for more information.

14 Preservation Commission Historic properties ADDED IN 2014 L a f a y e t t e C i t y - P a r i s h GEORGE BERNARD HOUSE 221 Dunreath Street Local Historic Property #100 Built: circa 1919 Style: American Bungalow Designated: June 19, 2014 George Bernard built this house as a family residence after residing in a smaller house on the same property for six years. In 1913 he purchased two lots and the smaller house. In 1919 he purchased five additional lots and built this fine example of a Craftsman-style American Bungalow. It has the customary, low-pitched gabled roof with triangular-shaped roof supports and expansive front porch with tapered wood columns on masonry piers. Other Craftsman-style elements include the slatted windows at the main gable and the trelliscovered side porch. An addition was made to the front right side, and the front door and windows were changed. These modifications were done with a close equivalency of period materials and similar construction methods. Because the house is relatively unchanged from its original appearance, it remains an excellent example of the style of house built in the early 1900s for residents in Historic Elmhurst Park. LOUIS & MILDRED MANN HOUSE 314 Dunreath Street Local Historic Property #101 Built: 1937 Style: English Cottage Revival Designated: June 19, 2014 Louis Marks Mann built this house for his wife, Mildred Pons Mann, and their five year old son, Louis Benjamin Mann. In 1937 Louis Marks Mann moved from New Orleans to Lafayette to open the new Lafayette Auto Parts store located, at that time, in the historic Lafayette Hardware Building. Louis M. Mann operated the Lafayette Auto Parts store until his death in Later, his son, Louis Benjamin Mann, married Elaine Louviere, the daughter of Larry J. Louviere, who was owner of Louisiana Motors located on Simcoe Street in Lafayette. Together, Louis Benjamin Mann and Larry J. Louviere owned and operated Louisiana Motors for a total of seventy-two years, inclusively. Elaine Louviere Mann founded Elaine Mann School of Dance in Lafayette and taught dance for forty years during the latter half of the twentieth century. The house has been occupied by the Mann family since its construction. The original construction and all subsequent work on the house was done by four generations of the same family, the Ducharme Brothers Construction Company. Page 12 Lafayette Preservation Commission The Public is welcome to attend Lafayette Preservation Commission Hearings, where history and architecture of our buildings are reviewed for the Lafayette City-Parish Register of Historic Properties.

15 Preservation Commission Historic properties ADDED IN 2014 Register of Historic Properties MAURICE POLLINGUE HOUSE 126 Dunreath Street Local Historic Property #99 Built: circa 1910 Style: American Bungalow Designated: June 19, 2014 Maurice Pollingue House was named for the man who built the house. Maurice Ignace Pollingue was born in 1875 in Saint Landry Parish, the son of Maurice Pollingue, Sr., who was born in France in 1833 and served as First Lieutenant in the Civil War in Vermillion Parish s 18th Regiment. Young Maurice moved into the house in Elmhurst Park around 1910 with his wife, Pearl, and their five-year-old daughter. He taught piano at the new technical school, predecessor to UL Lafayette called Southwest Louisiana Industrial Institute. After the Institute was established in 1900, Dr. Felix Girard, sold a portion of his property, located across Johnston Street from the Institute, to George T. Hedges of Cedar Rapids Iowa for $20,000. Mr. Hedges developed the property into Elmhurst Park Addition Subdivision which provided much-needed, conveniently-located lots for residences near the school. By 1910, streets were built and lots throughout the new development were being sold for residential use. circa 1936 photo of 126 Dunreath Street Page 13
