Scott’s Welcome Heritage Interpretive Center
The City of Scott has taken on a project of renovating one of its own little Acadian houses, which was donated by the descendants of the Joseph Begnaud family, the great grandchildren Ken, Carl, and Carolyn Hebert.
The house was moved from its original property, where it now is nestled among the walking trail and Scott’s Arboretum, five hundred yards south of the Scott Exit #97.
This new project has been in operation since September of this year 2008.
It serves as a Tourist Information Center, with maps, brochures, Louisiana Magazines etc.
It also is home to a small library area with the collection of the city’s history and memorabilia. With the people adding and sharing to this collection on a daily basis, has become a history social meeting place.
There is also a small souvenir and gift shop for locals and visitors to have easy access to our local history books, Cajun and Creole Music, local hand crafted items, and much more Cajun and Louisiana products.
We also have a Heritage Interpretive Room we call the class room. It has a wide screen TV /VCR/ DVD for us to use to show documentaries of our area. These documentaries may be viewed during the daily hrs of operation.
We have been very fortunate, that several of our civic community organizations have called La Maison de Begnuad their place to hold meetings, gatherings on history, culture, and even special cultural events.
