Circa 1880

In the late nineteenth century, the Dreyfus building functioned as a large wholesale grocery. The original brick structure dates back to the period just after the great fire of 1870. In late 1929, it was partitioned to create two buildings. The Dreyfus building became known as the Sports Center in 1937 and was a popular gathering place of local residents for many years. The building remained vacant until 2003. At that time the building was purchased by the City of New Iberia and was designated as the Bayou Teche Museum to be operated by the New Iberia Museum Foundation.
