What do you know about Orphan Trains? There are only two orphan train Museums in existence and St. Landry Parish has one of them!
Get on the bus with us as we travel to Opelousas to learn the history of the Louisiana orphan trains and their riders, as well as the families who took them in. The docents at the museum are descendants of Orphan Train riders and they tell their tales with love and remembrance.
We will start with a guided tour of Le Vieux Village to learn about early rural life in St. Landry Parish before heading into the Orphan Train Museum.
Lunch at Café Josephine (ooh la la!) in Sunset, followed by a tour of Sacred Heart School in historic Grand Coteau!
All in all, it should be a wonderful day.
