Joseph Jefferson House was built in 1870. It is a charming Victorian mansion registered in the National Historic District and has four floors.
Jefferson placed the mansion among 350-year-old oak trees on the Salt Dome, which is almost unprecedented in the coastal area of ​​southern Louisiana at an elevation of 75 feet.
