Hamilton and Associates is a professional architectural Corporation in Opelousas, Louisiana. The firm constructed the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve (Acadian Culture Center) in New Orleans.

Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve protects significant examples of the rich, natural, and cultural resources of Louisiana’s Mississippi River Delta Region. The park, named after the pirate Jean Lafitte, also interprets the influence of environment and history on the development of the unique Cajun regional culture. The park consists of six physically separate sites. 

This collection reflects on the Acadiana area, which consists of the Acadian Cultural Center in Lafayette, the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center in Eunice, and the Wetlands Acadian Culture Center in Thibodeaux.  

This collection consists mostly of original and research material for the publication “Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve”. There are blueprints of the area as well.
