it all started with...

The Jeanerette Landmark Society, in it’s infancy, was chartered September 2002. As the landscape of Jeanerette was changing precious landmarks were being lost. A group of community leaders decided to create the society to preserve, restore and maintain our heritage.

The first landmark the society chose, and the catalyst for the creation of the society was the Harry B. Hewes home, a two and a half story Eastlake Victorian home, in danger of destruction. Mr. Hewes was one of the founders and owners of the Jeanerette Lumber and Single Company, which for almost 40 years was a major supplier of red cypress lumber for the nation and a major employer in the community of Jeanerette.

The pictures below document the history of the company, the men who harvested the logs from the Atchafalaya Basin, and the evolution of the Harry B. Hewes home from 1897 to present day.

We need people like you

There is more to volunteering than giving back. Have you ever considered how volunteering can help you? From honing professional skills to expanding your network, volunteering can be a win-win for both you and the people you serve. Rolling up your sleeves and donating time and energy can make a positive difference in your community and in your life.
Here are a few reasons volunteering can help you too:


Let volunteering fuel your passion

Feeling bogged down in your daily routine? Do something you love.

Learn new skills

Volunteering can help develop new skills. Professional development isn’t limited to workday hours; volunteering is the perfect way to challenge yourself. Add volunteer experience to your resume.

Expand your network

Meet other like-minded people who support our cause and make personal and professional connections. Helping our organization could provide a more fulfilling way to network. 



Every penny counts

We recognize with grateful appreciation all who have contributed to our success.
