The neighborhood I reside at in New Iberia is situated right off Old Jeanerette Road (Highway 87) that is known for its antebellum and plantation homes (Bayside, Alice, etc...). Old Jeanerete Road also runs parallel to Old Spanish Trail (Highway 182) which also contains historic plantation homes (Shadows-on-the-Teche, Arlington, etc...). At the other end of this neighborhood is Nancy Street. An unremarkable street except for the fact that it abruptly ends right at what appears to be an allee (tree lined path) of oak trees. At the end of the path are remnants of a brick stairway and, unfortunately, nothing else. It appears as though a historic home once stood there.

I hope to take detailed pictures of the spot soon. Would anyone in the area happen to know anything about what once existed here?

The best way to find out is to visit the local Historical Society or if the town is very small the next closest town. If your unable to find a Historical Society go to the post office and ask the mail carriers. You can also ask them if they know anyone that might be able to tell you if they don't know.

Thanks. I found a site for the Iberia Cultural Resources Association. Hopefully they can help.
