Jean Mouton built the Lafayette Museum prior to 1836. The building consisted of one large room with the kitchen in the back. The kitchen was connected by a “dog-trot”, or open walkway. Governor Alexandre Mouton, whose great contribution to the history of Louisiana is well known, first occupied the house.
