Explore the Streets of Downtown Louisiana
In downtown Houma, roughly two hours from Maison D’Memoire is Lafayette Street. This famous Louisiana street was transformed into the 1960s fishing village featured in the movie, Barkley Cove. Local businesses on the street were transformed into a barbershop, movie cinema, hardware store, and more just for the film. Real-life stores on the street such as Linsi L Cenac and La Boujee Boutique were converted into retro furniture and hardware stores. In fact, the film crew even brought in vintage cars and an old rail bus to finish the 1960s look.
Wander the Marshes
One of the main Where the Crawdads Sing locations is Kyra’s home, which was filmed in the marshes of Lake Pontchartrain and the neighboring towns of Mandeville and Madisonville. While filming between April to July of 2021, the crew experienced much adversity due to extreme weather conditions such as lightning, floods, and extreme heat. But, that is the price you pay when filming in the South!
Visit the Original Courthouse
Another top setting of the movie, where some of the most dramatic scenes were filmed, is the courtroom. The movie’s courtroom is actually the St. Bernard Parish Courthouse in Chalmette, Louisiana just outside of New Orleans. This historic courtroom is more commonly known today as a middle school building. People can even rent out the second level for events.
