Historical neighborhood in Lafayette hosts self-guided tours

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE, La. -

The Preservation Alliance is teaching residents the history behind the Freetown-Port Rico neighborhood in Lafayette.

The self-guided tour showed visitors the diversity and beauty of the homes in one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city.

"One of my favorite things about the neighborhood is that it's always been a really diverse neighborhood, and so I think one of the things we try to highlight in the tours is that diversity. So, one of my favorite historical structures is the Good Hope Hall, which was host to so many musical events," organizer Elizabeth Brooks said.
