The home is adorned with decorative gingerbread and spindle wood work, a non-symmetrical floor plan, a projecting bay window, fish-scale wooden shingles seen on the front facing gable roof, and a transom window above the front door. The siding and window sashes are made of cypress wood. The house was once the childhood home of Opelousas native, Bishop Michael Jarrell of the Catholic Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana.The house was moved to Le Vieux Village on June 28, 2009. Teche Federal Bank donated the home and funded the costs for the relocation.
