Frédéric Henri Duperier originally donated Church Alley
to the City of New lberia. The Duperier family lived across
the Bayou Teche in the mansion that was to become
Mt. Carmel Academy. In 1837, Duperier donated the land
for St. Peter's Catholic Church to the city with intentions
of sitting on his porch and being able to gaze across
the bayou and down the alley to view the very stately
church. Under his leadership the town was incorporated
on March 13, 1839, two days before his death. The city
accepted the donation of the alley with the agreement
that it would always be known as "Church Alley." The
nuns from the academy would eventually use the route
to walk students to mass at the church. The alley is now
a contributing part of the New lberia National Register
Commercial Historic District.
