The Louisiana Territory Scarf
The Louisiana Territory scarf illustrates French and Spanish Colonial architecture and post-1803 Louisiana Territory plantation architecture. The Jean and Alexandrine Pradel house along the Mississippi River below New Orleans was among the earliest grand French Colonial buildings of the 18th century.

Dumont de Montigny's house and garden in New Orleans date from the 1730s. Spanish Colonial hip roof country houses are represented by the Labatut and Chenal Spanish Colonial houses upriver. Uncle Sam's plantation was the finest antebellum American style plantation complex along the Mississippi River until its demolition by the Corps of Engineers while moving the levee back, despite every effort by preservationists.

Outbuildings are an important part of any agricultural complex, and the pigeonaire at Parlange along False River is one of the few remaining. The detached kitchen is from an Anglo-American plantation in the "Florida Parishes" or the "Felicianas."
