Bayou Lafourche Folklife and Heritage Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to the mission of preserving and sharing the history and cultural heritage of the Bayou Lafourche region. To that end the all-volunteer staff has established an interactive, three-dimensional exhibit entitled "Bayou Excursion: 1910" to interpret life along what has come to be known as "the longest street"--Bayou Lafourche!
