Historic Register AND Library of Congress! We believe this to be the last standing & livable lumber mill office in Louisiana! This Virgin Cypress “Office” Home allows history to come alive through restored pieces of the homes history….2 walk in safes, upstairs and downstairs rotundas, artifacts of historical significance, make it a one of a kind beauty that is worth whatever effort it may take on the outside! Many extras, including pieces of furniture/equipment, may be considered.
The surrounding 65 acres have been “eaten away”, leaving this esteemed home without a beautiful setting. It has become like an oyster, rough on the outside but outstandingly beautiful on the inside!” A new setting for the home could be considered, but with landscaping and a small amount of work on the outside, the home would be a fabulous family home, museum, gallery, B&B, Gift Shop or even a restaurant!
Though it will require a special situation, person and/or company to achieve the preservation and integrity of this structure, we truly hope there is someone, somewhere, that will care to continue the legacy of this beautiful building that holds so much of America’s past!
We are searching for that person/company who will love this home as we have as we move into retirement.
If you are interested, please contact us and perhaps even plan to visit this beautiful place we call home. We would be happy to share it with you and let you see first-hand how truly beautiful and irreplaceable this piece of history is….The Albert Hanson Lumber Mill Office (Historic Register since 1991) deserves to be shown off and continued! It literally helped build America and for that, we owe it a continued future!
Many attractions are within a 1-2 hour drive….New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Houma, the gulf and tours of other beautiful homes as well as fishing and hunting beyond compare!
