These columns were contracted by an architect in North Louisiana. They were to replicate the columns on an old Acadian cottage in my area (Baton Rouge). It was convenient for me to cross the Mississippi River and go there. The cottage had been restored and placed on city property as a small museum.

You may know from history that the Acadians were the French that were run out of Canada in the 19th century by the English. Many moved to to South Louisiana.
