The guest speakers at the Lions Club this week were Suzanne Brossette, Member of Historic Grand Cane Association, and Kathleen Davis, Inn Keeper. The ladies told a little about the history of the Cook-Hill House, the venerable old Grand Cane home. The presentation included how it was acquired and moved to its present location on the corner of 816 Fifth St. and La. Hwy. 3015.
The original house was built by the Hill family just a few miles west on 3015 circa 1850. By Marriage, the old house was home to the Hills, Cooks and Ricks. It is now a premier member of the Village of Grand Cane and has been extensively decorated. New plumbing and electrical as well as central heat and air are among the updates. Ms. Davis says its style is “Victorian with a Southern Charm.” You can book the Cook-Hill House as a weekend BnB, for a wedding or baby shower, a meeting or any other type of small event up to 50 people. For more information call the House at 318-858-0800 and talk with Kathleen about available dates and price ranges.
