Acadian Home Style of New Orleans

New Orleans Acadian Home Style

The Acadian home design, has a rich history in New Orleans dating back to the mid 18th century when the British forced French settlers from the Acadia area of Canada, including Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island to leave.

Many of these early settlers migrated to New Orleans and brought their French influenced home design and culture with them.  Acadian home styles offer a quaint and unusual look that many people find appealing. This style is characterized by a sloped roof which gives the home a cottage like appearance and a gable roof and porch combine to create a charming look that is easy on the eyes.
