Steeped in rich history and full of charm, the Southdown Plantation House is a 19th century sugar manor house that was originally built by sugar plant owner William J. Minor. This Victorian-style architectural house is now the Terrebonne Museum of History, Culture, and Arts, and hosts yearly arts and crafts festivals as well as rotating exhibits around the calendar. Tours of the splendid manor house and the carefully preserved worker's cabin are provided daily, and people enjoy the beautiful lush green scenery of this 4- acre property where they can learn more about the rich local heritage through interactive exhibitions.

Houma is the official gateway to Cajun Country, hosting various annual events that seek to satisfy the curiosities of travelers, but can also be enjoyed by locals year after year. While Mardi Gras is one of the main statewide celebrations that attracts visitors from all over the world, the Terrebone Folklife Culture Center and Le Petit Theater de Terrebonn provides this small town with a jam packed schedule filled with festivals, old fashioned fairs rodeos, music festivals, cultural events, and sporting tournaments to complement their hearty warm southern style. While some festivals are for the adult-only crowd, there are plenty of opportunities throughout the year to gather the entire family and celebrate the culture of the Houma area.
