Inscription.  
This Queen Anne Revival cottage was built in 1896 by Edmond Pellerin. The carpenter, Emile Bergeron, built the entire house of local cypress and the house remains the finest example of rural farm life in Breaux Bridge at the end of the 19th Century.

This house is the first original Breaux Bridge home on the National Register of Historic Places.
