The Eunice Depot Museum is housed in the old train depot from which C.C. Duson sold the first land sites in 1894 for the town named after his wife, Eunice. Restored in 1984, the building is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and contains exhibits and collections depicting the lifestyles of the early settlers of this Cajun prairie town. The museum is a time capsule of items such as clothing, tools, toys and antique items that you may not even recognize. The Courir de Mardi Gras exhibit gives a brief history of the unique rituals that take place and colorful clothing that is worn by revelers during the carnival season.

The museum is located in downtown Eunice, Louisiana, right next to the Cajun French Music Hall of Fame & Museum and walking distance from shops and the Jean Lafitte National Park Prairie Acadian Cultural Center. A statue of Clovis Crawfish stands out front celebrating the famous children’s stories of Eunice resident, Mary Alice Fontenot.

Liberty Theatre

The Liberty is currently closed for renovations. Check out their progress here.

The Liberty Theatre is one of Louisiana’s most iconic concert halls. Since 1987, the world has flocked to the Liberty Theatre for the Saturday night “Rendez-vous des Cajuns,” a live radio and TV show featuring Cajun and zydeco music bands. The first show took place the evening of July 11 and featured Julius Angelle “Papa Cairo” Lamperez, Chuck Guillory and His Rhythm Boys, and the Church Point Playboys. More recently, Grammy-nominated bands graced the stage such as Dwayne Dopsie & The Zydeco Hellraisers or The Magnolia Sisters. You could dance with Louisiana music legends every Saturday night at 6pm. Listen to past concerts on KRVS.

The Liberty Amusement Co. formed in 1920 and hosted comedic acts such as “Happy Gowland.” In 1924, the owners A. F. McGee, Sr. and Claude Keller took their acts to a new location, the corner of Park Avenue and Second Street where The Liberty still stands today. The restored vaudeville theatre would host other musical events throughout the year including Creole Accordion Kings, Cajun Fiddle Masters, and a Tribute to Hank Williams, Sr. The Liberty Theatre was also available year-round to groups. Groups could book the space for dance lessons or even a private party.
